The interview process for Design and Technology will be held virtually, via Zoom, on the dates stated in the application and on the Theatre and Dance website. All applicants will be notified of dates, times, schedules, materials needed, and interview guidelines via email approximately four weeks prior to the interview date chosen. Continue to be active in your Application Portal and upload any required documents prior to your interview date. Please add firstname.lastname@example.org to your address book to avoid messages getting lost or dropped in spam/junk. You are encouraged to email email@example.com with any questions.
What to Bring
- a resume that outlines your theatre activities and experience
- a portfolio or folder of materials that illustrates your work, if applicable (Depending on your area of study, you may submit renderings, models, drawings, sketches, prompt books, poster or program designs, and photographs)
- If a portfolio is not relevant to your discipline, you can present a notebook containing program copies and stage photographs for each production you wish to document.
a short statement of purpose that addresses what you want to do in the theatre (In the statement, please explain clearly why you have a passion for your area of interest, as well as what skills and values you possess which will make you a successful student for the next four years, and a working professional later.)
Please be prepared to discuss and answer questions about your portfolio, folder, notebook, and statement of purpose, as well as your past theatrical experiences.
You will be interviewed by members of our faculty who will welcome you and be eager to learn more about you.
We do not expect every student to have a physical representation of work done in the past, or to be at a particular level of knowledge or experience. You are strongly encouraged to bring anything you think will help the interview process, as outlined above, but if you only have the required resume, that is acceptable.
