Apply to the Department of Theatre

All applicants to the BFA and BA Theatre programs must apply to the University. The BFA Theatre program requires an entrance audition and interview for performance majors. A portfolio review and interview is required for both Design & Technology and Theatre Studies majors. BA Theatre students are not required to audition for entrance.

Virtual audition dates are available in both fall 2020 and spring 2021. Theatre TCU also participates in virtual National Unified Auditions in early 2021. Students that complete any Theatre TCU audition will be considered for Theatre scholarship and Nordan Fine Arts awards.

To secure a BFA entrance audition, upload a complete profile to Acceptd as a pre-screen and appointments will be set if the pre-screen is approved. The TCU Acceptd portal will open on September 15, 2020.

For more information contact Lindsay Cowdin, or 817-257-7625.
