Thank you to the 2012 participants! 2013 information will be available in the spring.
2012 Agenda for College Representatives
8:30 – 9:00am – Check-in and set-up booths for College Fair.
9:00 – 10:00 – The Inside Scoop
NCTC Executive Director Angie Hays will facilitate a panel conversation with one representative from each college. This is a keynote event, with all students and parents. Topics of conversation will include production seasons, audition opportunities, scholarships and more. We’ll illustrate differences in programs and highlight unique aspects of each school. Sign up to participate when registering and Angie will contact you to discuss panel preparation.
10:15-11:30 – Networking and Roundtable Discussions (Sponsored by Triad Stage)
While students are in workshops, you have a rare opportunity to connect with your colleagues from other colleges. We’ll provide coffee and some topics for conversation, and you can use this time to make friends and connections.
10:15-10:45 – Hear it from the Experts! (College Student Panel)
While you are enjoying coffee and conversation, current college theatre majors will share their experiences with high school students and parents, in a panel discussion facilitated by NCTC Board Member Claire Wisniewski. College students can attend College Discovery Day for free to help you with recruitment, and you can identify a student to serve on this panel during your registration process.
11:30-12:30 – Lunch in the Greensboro College Cafeteria (included in registration). You may also choose to go off-campus for lunch and we will provide directions and options at check-in.
12:30: College Fair Opens, Auditions and Portfolio Reviews Begin
How you choose to spend your time during the afternoon is up to you and depends on how many people you are able to bring. It is recommended that you try to have at least one faculty member or some of your current students stationed at your booth beginning at 12:30. Runners will be available to bring call-back sheets to your booth team.
This year, students in grades 9-12 have the option of auditioning for you or presenting a portfolio. If they are not ready to audition/present, they will attend preparation workshops during this time. Non-actors will introduce themselves in the audition room, prior to the start of the auditions, and will then move to a room for portfolio review. If you do not have a faculty member to conduct these interviews, you can simply call back these students and they will visit your booth at the College Fair.
5:30 – College Fair Closes
