Audition and Interview Information
Admission to the program is by interview and audition at the annual U/RTA sites and at scheduled auditions on campus. The PATP is open to a limited number of talented, mature, and motivated students. Actors may audition on the Athens campus or at the U/RTA auditions in NYC or Chicago (details).
There is a continual communication among the performance faculty members aimed at monitoring and advancing the training of each student. Semester evaluations inform students of their progress and outline specific strengths and weaknesses. Students demonstrating consistent growth are invited by the faculty to continue in the succeeding year of training.
Commitment to non-discrimination
Ohio University operates on a holistic, selective review and looks for evidence of academic preparation when reviewing applications for admission. Additionally, because the School of Theater considers artistic talent in the review process, students pursuing certain academic programs must audition, interview, and/or submit additional materials for admission and scholarship consideration. Ohio University and the School of Theater do not discriminate against any applicants because of race, color, religion, age, national origin, ethnicity, national ancestry, sex, pregnancy, gender, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, military service or veteran status, mental or physical disability, or genetic information.
