Visit The Theatre School

Interested in seeing The Theatre School and learning more about our programs and admissions process? The best way is to visit.

Information Sessions & Tours

Both undergraduate (BFA) and graduate (MFA) visits are scheduled online and are available throughout the year on most weekdays, with the exception of university holidays. Information sessions are led by a Theatre Admissions Counselor and include an overview of our training programs, production season, and application process. Current students lead tours of The Theatre School, including studios, workshops, classrooms, and performance spaces.

Debut DePaul: October 20 & November 3

We host undergraduate theatre-specific open house programs called Debut DePaul that coincide with the main university's Fall Visit Days. Debut DePaul is specifically for students interested in pursuing a theatre major and offers information sessions about the application process, presentations on student life, tours, a demonstration class, and the opportunity to see an evening performance. Admissions interviews are available the next day for non-acting students who have submitted an admissions application and registered for the interview in advance.

Registration for both Debut DePaul events is now closed. Students on the waitlist for either event will be notified as space becomes available.

Admitted Students Visits

Our Admitted Students Weekend (April 13-14) is a two day program for admitted BFA students and their families. Students will 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.

Admitted MFA students and BFA students who cannot attend the Admitted Students Weekend are invited to contact the Theatre Admissions Office to set up an individual visit day.
