SETC Auditionees (Juniors)


What a great conference! Great to meet you and see your work! 

We were very excited by your talent level, and truly hope you apply to the University of Memphis next year!

Definitely keep me in the loop as you determine the next step in your academic and professional journey as a musical theater performer.

If you have any questions (whatsoever) do not hesitate to call or email me.

I encourage you to tour the remainder of our website and discover all the Department of Theatre & Dance at the University of Memphis has to offer.

If you have not already, I encourage you to watch the video available on our Main Page.  Aside from a campus visit it can give you a good sense of the environment here at Memphis.

Come Visit!

I would love to arrange an on-campus visit where you could view our facilities, talk with students currently enrolled in the musical theatre program, and perhaps catch one of our main stage productions or studio shows. If you can't make the trip, we can arrange for a phone, email, or Skype call with a current student.



The Application Process

When you do apply to our program (and I urge you to do so!), make sure to apply both to the Department of Theatre & Dance and the University of Memphis.  Audition dates for students looking to enroll in Fall 2016 will be available soon!

There are two separate steps.

  1. Fill out the step-by-step online application for the Department of Theatre & Dance available on our website
  2. Complete the University of Memphis general application.

You must be accepted by both the University of Memphis and by the Department of Theatre & Dance in order to receive admittance into any Theatre program.
