Location & Schedules

We hold auditions and interviews in Ithaca, New York, and Chicago; this year we will also offer two virtual sessions for applicants who are unable to travel. 

In New York and Chicago, please expect to be at our session to sign in and attend the group orientation and warm-up/movement exercises (acting and musical theatre only) or area-specific orientation (theatre arts management, theatre studies, and theatrical production & design). After these are complete, you can leave to attend another audition or interview, as long as you come back before the end of our session (1/2 hour before the listed "end of session"). Please do not sign up for an audition for another school at the same time if they also require a "block" audition, as they tend to be less flexible. Other auditions/interviews that require your presence for 10-60 minutes work well, as long as they begin after our orientations and/or warm-ups are completed. Once your individual audition or interview is completed, you are free to leave at any time.
