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

Information sessions and tours are scheduled online using the admissions events calendar and 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 training programs, production season, and application process. Following the information session, current students lead tours of The Theatre School. These visits last approximately two (2) hours.

Undergraduate Open House

The Theatre School hosts an annual open house program in January 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 includes the option (for students who have already submitted an application) to complete an admissions audition or interview that same weekend.

Admitted Students Weekend

Our Admitted Students Weekend is a two day program in April for admitted 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.

See a Show

The Theatre School makes complimentary tickets available to prospective students to see our productions. Check out our current season to see what is playing and then contact The Theatre School Admissions Office with the name, date, and time of the show you would like to attend. Tickets can be requested by email or by calling (773) 325-7999.
