Auditions Schedule

Baylor Theatre Audition & Interview Dates 2021-2022


The Application Process

  • Apply to Baylor early, and before the February 1st deadline.
  • Admission into Baylor is highly competitive. Prospective students are strongly urged to complete their application at the earliest possible date in order to avoid being waitlisted by the university. Also, the number of available places in the entering class of theatre majors are reduced as we approach the May 1st deadline.
  • Acceptance into Baylor’s Theatre Arts program is by audition/interview only. Prospective students must be accepted by both the University and the Department of Theatre Arts.


Pre-screening

  • Prescreening audition materials (monologues, songs, resume, etc.) will be submitted as part of the application to Baylor University. These can be uploaded to your application Portfolio.  The audition/materials will be reviewed and successful applicants will be invited to have a remote interview with the Theatre faculty. Alternatively, you can audition at one of the collective auditions, in lieu of submitting the pre-screening materials.


On-Campus/Virtual Auditions and Interviews

  • Students must submit pre-screening materials either as part of their Baylor application, or by attending (in-person or virtually) one of the collective events listed below. Based on the pre-screening, students may be invited to an on-campus or virtual audition/interview on one the following dates. We have listed theatre performances that coincide with these dates. If attending in-person, please stay and be our guest at a performance while you are on our campus.
