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.

Admissions Information Sessions and Tours

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 and audition/interview process.

Following the information session, current students lead tours of The Theatre School, including performance spaces, rehearsal studios, classrooms, lighting laboratories, sound studio, and costume, make-up, prop and scene shops. These visits last approximately two (2) hours.

Information sessions and tours are scheduled online using the admissions events system. Please ensure that you select an information session for The Theatre School.

Undergraduate Open Houses

The Theatre School hosts two annual open house programs for high school seniors. Called Theatre Debut DePaul, 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.
