Pre-Screen Submission Process

A pre-screen video submission is required for acting, musical theatre and theatre arts applicants. You must complete the pre-screen process in order to be considered for a live (virtual) audition/interview.

Due to the number of students who audition each year for the Conservatory, we do not provide feedback on individual audition results.

Submit Materials Online

Beginning September 1st, applicants may begin to submit pre-screen materials to Submissions will be reviewed on a rolling basis. Applicants will be notified of their pre-screen results via their personal Accept'd account (in messages).

Applicants invited to a live (virtual) audition/interview based on their pre-screening submission will receive a registration link to schedule. Live (virtual) audition slots are available on a first-come, first served basis.

Applicants are strongly encouraged to submit their pre-screen materials as soon as possible (beginning September 1) as audition slots fill quickly. 

Artistic Review Fee

All acting, musical theatre and theatre arts pre-screens have a $100 artistic review fee, due at the time of submission. Applicants who are subsequently invited to a live (virtual) audition/interview will not be required to submit additional fee.

Conservatory applicants can be considered for an audition fee waiver. A waiver is based upon an applicant’s financial circumstances; i.e., you have received or are eligible to receive a College Board (SAT) or NACAC application fee waiver, you are Federal Pell Grant eligible (based upon your FAFSA) or your current financial situation stipulates that the audition fee would present a hardship.
