2022 Acceptd Walk-In Auditions

Participating Schools

Our Walk-In Audition Weekend, for the Class of 2022, provides an exceptional opportunity to audition for a handful of schools that, for whatever reason, you did not audition for in the early or regular decision rounds.

Keep checking the dropdown at the left to see a growing list of participating schools!

Reasons to consider attending our walk-in weekend: 

  • You haven’t found your perfect fit yet and would like to expand your list. 
  • You got a late start and missed deadlines. Late starts happen for many reasons (illness, family, etc.) – so, no judgement. Now is the time to get to work. 
  • Your goals have shifted. Maybe you started as an MT candidate, but as you have navigated the process, you are feeling like you really want a BFA in Acting and want to make sure to support that new dream with the appropriate schools.
  • You had no idea what this process entailed and now feel that your list is unbalanced.

FAQS:

What should I include in my dance video?
The dance video is optional to submit, however, recommended for Musical Theatre students. We advise you follow the guidelines from the Musical Theatre Common Prescreen Criteria:
  • 30-60 seconds of dance, in whatever dance discipline you are most comfortable with: jazz, ballet, modern, African, hip hop, lyrical, or contemporary.
  • No barre , however, a ballet solo is acceptable.
  • No tap. For applicants that tap, consider showcasing that skill as part of your wild card submission.
  • Please use steps, movement, and physical vocabulary that you are familiar with and can execute well.
  • Dance media can be self-choreographed, but must be a solo video of you. This can include a show, competition, or other performance so long as you are clearly featured on your own.
  • All choreography must be performed to music; no “a cappella” dance media please.
Do I also need to apply to the school?

Yes. After you complete your audition, if you are serious about the school, you must submit your academic application within 2 weeks in order to be fully considered. Some schools also require a supplemental application to the department. Please reference your confirmation email upon registering for further details.

Are walk-in auditions for graduate programs too?
No. This year the Acceptd Walk-In Auditions are only for undergraduate students looking to audition for BFA, BM, or BA programs.
