Welcome to the Auburn University Department of Theatre!
If you have applied for admission to Auburn University, have not previously submitted the BFA Music Theatre Prescreen Consideration application, and are interested in majoring in Music Theatre, we have re-opened the application-specific to this program.
To get you started, here are the answers to some of the questions you may have:
What theatre degree programs does Auburn offer?
We offer the Bachelor of Arts (BA) in Theatre as well as Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) degrees in Music Theatre, Performance, Theatre Design and Technology, and Management.
How do I get in?
With the exception of the BFA music theatre program, students are not required to audition to declare a theatre major. If you are interested in majoring in theatre in the BA degree program, welcome! If you are interested in majoring in the BFA performance, design & technology, or management degree programs, auditions and portfolio presentations are conducted in the spring semester of your sophomore year. If you are interested in majoring in the BFA music theatre program, you will need to submit a prescreen application to be considered for admission to the program for Fall 2021. Your music theatre prescreen application will also serve as your audition for scholarship consideration.
Do I have to declare theatre as my major to be considered for a theatre scholarship?
I’m a transfer student coming in during my junior year. May I audition for the BFA in Music Theatre?
Yes. If you are transferring to Auburn as a junior you may audition for the BFA in Performance.
I would like to audition for the BFA Music Theatre Program. What do I need to prepare?
Prescreen materials are required for students seeking entrance to the Music Theatre BFA. For audition instructions and access to the application click “Music Theatre Prescreen and Scholarship Consideration” and “Select Program” from the “Start an Application” drop-down box on the left side of your screen and click on "BFA Music Theatre.”
