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, and at the Georgia Theatre Conference in November, the Georgia Thespian Conference in February and the Southeastern Theatre Conference in March.

Auditions for Performance Majors

Screening auditions take place at the three conferences listed above and via video auditions. If you don’t see us at one of the conference auditions, you may submit a video audition.

To be considered for scholarships and BFA placement, performers must have a live or video audition and submit a headshot and resume. Students may be pre-screened at the Georgia Theatre Conference, Georgia Thespian Conference, SETC, or by video submission.

To submit a pre-screen audition or register for a callback audition, visit GTA on GetAcceptd. A $30 application fee applies, however, students who receive callbacks from one of the conferences will receive a fee waiver.

Callbacks for scholarships and BFA placement will be held on November 7, 2020, February 20, 2021, and April 17, 2021. These are invitation only events for performers based on our screening auditions. Students who are invited to callbacks will be given specific audition package requirements to prepare.

Portfolio Reviews for Design and Technology Majors

Candidates for the BFA in Design & Technology degree should visit the GTA booth at the Georgia Theatre Conference, the Georgia Thespian Conference or the Southeastern Theatre Conference, or email GTA Recruitment Chair Celeste Morris for a portfolio review appointment at one of GTA’s audition/interview events, November 7, 2020, February 20, 2021, and April 17, 2021. 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 audition/interview event, where you will see our work, have the chance to meet current students, and discuss any questions with the faculty and staff.
