AUDITION/INTERVIEW

Theater Performance: Prepare two short pieces of contrasting style of your choice (comedy/tragedy, classic/contemporary, etc.) totaling two and a half minutes. Please do not use dialects. No introduction is required; simply name the play and character which you will be performing and begin your scene. You are expected to memorize these scenes. If you have any questions regarding the monologues, please contact Darcey Engen, engen@augsburg.edu. Do not hesitate to contact her.

 

Technical Theater: Prepare a work sample which may include photographs or models of costumes, sets, or other aspects of theater you have worked on. Prepare a three- to five-minute presentation in which you explain the sample and provide an overview of your work.

You will be contacted to schedule an audition only after you have been admitted to Augsburg College and Admissions has received the completed Fine Arts Scholarship Submission Form. For students entering Spring Semester, auditions will be scheduled by appointment.
