Interview Guidelines

The Department of Theatre and Dance encourages students who are interested in all production areas including Directing, Theatre Education, Costume Design, Lighting Design, Scene Design, Sound Design, Makeup Design, Stage Management, Theatre Management, Technicians, etc. to interview for the Fine Arts Scholarship Program.

  1. Prepare a resume that outlines your theatre activities (experiences).  Include a portfolio or folder of materials which illustrates your work, if applicable.  Students in all disciplines may also submit renderings, models, drawings, sketches, prompt books, poster or program designs, and photographs, which are all appropriate.  Many students present a loose-leaf notebook containing program copies and stage photographs for design and technology, directing, and/or stage management for each production they wish to document.  Many students include any work they have done with workshops, intensive learning, immersive learning, theatre camps and so on for Theatre Education.
  1. Prepare a short purpose statement about what you want to do in the theatre.  In the statement, you should be able to clearly explain why you have a passion for your area of interest as well as what skills and values you already have which will make you an effective student now and professional in your area of interest later. 
  1. Also, be  prepared to discuss and answer questions about your portfolio, folder, purpose statement and experiences.
  1. You will be interviewed by Department of Theatre and Dance faculty and students.  We want you to relax and feel at home in our department.

**Please note that we do not expect to see every student come through with specific representation of work done or at a specific level of knowledge or experience. It is acceptable for a student to only have the required resume. However, it is strongly encouraged to bring anything you might think will help the process.**
