If you have any questions, 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.
