Request three letters of recommendation from individuals who are familiar with your desire to attend The Theatre School. You can electronically request a letter from a recommender through the online application by providing their information on the recommenders page, or you may simply have your recommender email their letter to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are a non-native English speaker who has not completed a bachelor's or master's degree in the United States, you will need to submit test scores from an English proficiency exam. Visit our international admission page for more information.
An audition is required in order to be considered for admission to the MFA Acting program. Our audition takes place in two steps: a prescreen and a callback. Please visit the MFA audition page for more information about what you'll need to prepare and what to expect. For callback audition dates, please visit our auditions & interviews page.
