Visit The Theatre School

Interested in seeing The Theatre School and learning more about our programs and admissions process? We offer a variety of ways to visit.

Information Sessions & Tours

Admissions information sessions and tours are available throughout the year on most weekdays, with the exception of university holidays. These sessions are led by a Theatre Admissions Counselor and include an overview of our conservatory training programs, information about our production season, and an outline of the application process. Following the information session, current students lead tours of The Theatre School. These visits last approximately two (2) hours.

Information sessions and tours are scheduled online using the admissions events calendar. Please ensure that you select a Theatre School Information Session/Tour. 

Admitted Students Visits

April 21-22, 2017

Our Admitted Students Weekend is a two day program for admitted students and their families. Admitted students will have the opportunity to observe classes, learn about housing, stay overnight with a current student, tour our campus, see a Theatre School production, and meet faculty, alumni, current students, and future classmates.

If you are an admitted student but unable to attend April 21-22, let us know! We would be happy to set up an individual visit-day for you, specific to The Theatre School and your major.

Undergraduate Open Houses

The Theatre School hosts two annual open house programs called Debut DePaul for high school seniors. This program includes information sessions covering The Theatre School's programs of study and the application and audition/interview process, as well as presentations on financial aid, student housing, and student life. Debut DePaul also includes tours of The Theatre School and Lincoln Park Campus and a demonstration class.

Debut DePaul is offered one Friday in November and January and includes the option (for students who have already submitted an application) to complete an admissions audition or interview that same weekend.
