Auditions & Scholarships


Scholarships and placement in the BFA programs are awarded to students based on talent, commitment and academic performance.  GTA faculty evaluate prospective students each semester at an audition/portfolio event, as well as at the Georgia Theatre Conference (in November), the Georgia Thespian Conference (in February) and the Southeastern Theatre Conference (in March).  Students desiring scholarships should be in the process of applying to Brenau University and/or University of North Georgia and must be declared theatre majors.

Auditions for Performance Majors

Screening auditions take place at the three conferences (listed above) and via video auditions.  Call backs for scholarships and BFA placement will be held on November 17, 2018 and in February 2019.  These are invitation only events for performers based on an evaluation through one of our screening auditions.

Screening audition requirements:

BFA Musical Theatre: 16-32 Bars of a song (bring sheet music) and one 60 second monologue.

BFA Acting: 2 contrasting 60 monologues

Video Auditions can be submitted via our Online Audition Form.  (TIP:  How-to notes are included on the form!)

Portfolio Reviews for Design and Technology Majors

Candidates for the BFA in Design and Technology degree should visit the GTA booth at the Georgia Theatre Conference, the Georgia Thespian Conference and the Southwestern Theatre Conference, or register to attend one of GTA’s two scholarship events, this year on November 17, 2018 and February, 2019.   Strong candidates should bring a resume and portfolio that demonstrates some preparation in technical and design areas.

Benefits & Logistics of a Two-School Program

We know you may have many questions about the logistics and benefits of our unique collaboration between two different schools, and we are happy to meet with you to discuss all questions. The best way to gain an understanding of the program is to attend a GTA scholarship audition event, where you will see our work, have the chance to meet current students, and discuss any questions with the faculty and staff.
