ALL AUDITIONS ARE NOW VIRTUAL ON AuditionRoom.

For your health and safety – and that of our faculty – we have decided to pivot all of our upcoming auditions to a virtual format using the Acceptd AuditionRoom platform. This includes the National Unified Audition dates in New York and Chicago. This decision is made in response to the increasing infection rates of Covid brought on by the Omicron variant that is sweeping the country, and the unpredictability this is causing for air travel nationwide.

If you already scheduled an in-person audition in NYC or Chicago:
If you are currently scheduled for an in-person audition in NYC or Chicago, your audition will now be virtual. The date and time remain the same. Our scheduling manager, Toni Groshek, will email you with details and to confirm your availability.

If you have not yet scheduled your audition:
Schedule your audition within your Acceptd application by selecting your preferred audition date (see our schedule listed below). Audition times are assigned in chronological order on a first come/first serve basis and are confirmed with a message through the Acceptd message board.

All virtual auditions will use Acceptd's AuditionRoom.

Common Prescreen / Acceptd Portfolio Criteria 

Viterbo University is a participant in the Musical Theatre Common Prescreen. This means we use the following criteria for digital audition submissions. https://papermill.org/musical-theater-common-prescreen/ 

Though it's called a "prescreen" we do not use this process to screen you out of an audition. We intend to meet every student who applies. Your Acceptd portfolio helps us get to know you before your audition, and it allows us to share your work with faculty who may not be present for your live or virtual audition. 

Fees Charged by Acceptd (If you’d like information about these fees, please submit a ticket at the Help Desk.) 

  • A $30 payment is required to make your portfolio available to us.  
  • An additional $30 is required IF you choose the virtual audition option through AuditionRoom.
Note: The Viterbo University admissions office does not charge an application fee.
