Want to know what the cafeteria food is like or hear about dorm life? This is your chance to ask those burning questions!
Students: So You Want to be a Theatre Major?
In this session, you get to ditch your parents and make friends with your fellow future theatre majors! We’ll learn more about possible careers in the theatre (it is more than just acting), summer training programs, and how to find your dream school (and what to do to stand out when you do)!

Try not to panic, we are here to help! Admissions counselors will provide guidance to navigate that part of the process and theatre leaders will talk about how you can help your student stand out in auditions and interviews.
