What is the best advice for a successful college audition process? Start early!

We are excited to invite you to the Pittsburgh Unifieds, the Re-Imagined Audition of 2021!

Welcome to our Acceptd portal. We are a collaborative network of industry professionals with years of experience in the college audition field who come together to offer you and your family a cost-effective, efficient, and kinder way to audition for College Theater programs. We are offering auditions for Musical Theater, Acting, and portfolio review for Tech/Design.

Together with input from Program Directors, Coaches, Students, and Parents who have first-hand experience of how expensive, stressful, and strenuous auditions can be, we are offering an applicant-friendly process so you can present the most prepared and confident version of you for a successful audition experience.

We know how fast the travel, audition, and application fees add up. Part of our mission is to provide a lower-cost audition process, so we have diligently negotiated the lowest fee profile with each program attending. We also believe being seen earlier by theater programs will yield a better overall financial package if a match is made before the scholarships from the University are dolled out to other committed applicants from other majors.

In order to ensure that your audition materials are ready to be seen by the Programs participating at Pittsburgh Unifieds, we have added a complimentary service which takes form of a unique pre-screen process. We require all applicants to download their materials by October 6, 2021. Within a week of your materials being uploaded, you will receive complimentary feedback from our expert panel who will either accept your materials through to the live audition process or you will receive feedback to improve your performance and rethink your audition materials for possible re-submission.  If your materials are not accepted to the next step of auditions, you will not be charged a Pittsburgh Unified Fee. The only fee you will incur, is the $30 one-time Acceptd fee.  You may opt to submit new materials, before October 6, 2021. We are offering this complimentary service because we believe it is important for you to present your full potential to the programs and want to help you achieve that.

Together, we have created a portal with all the information and technology that you will need to stay on track throughout your process. Students who register for the Live Pittsburgh Unified Audition Experience October 8, 9, and 10th, will audition consortium style for the attending schools and may receive callbacks/interviews on Sunday/invitations to campus/possible offers from these schools all in the same weekend.

We require proof of Covid Vaccination in order to audition live in Pittsburgh.   We are also offering a Virtual opportunity for those who cannot travel to Pittsburgh or have not been vaccinated. There is an additional cost from Acceptd to attend virtually to cover technology.

If you are interested in more information on attending these auditions, please begin the registration process starting July 1, 2021 at
