The Theatre School > Conservatory > Undergraduate Conservatory > Stage Management > How to Apply
All of your application materials must be received no later than
December 1 in order to be prescreened and considered for an interview. Applications that are incomplete after the December 1 deadline will not be reviewed.
Because of the prescreen process, we strongly recommend Stage Management applicants be well-organized and submit their application materials early. Interviews take place in January and February.
Applicants who pass the prescreen will be notified by email and will interview one-on-one with the head of the BFA Stage Management program. We believe that during the interview, the questions you have for us are as important as the questions we have for you. There is no fixed format or schedule of questions for the interview, so you will be evaluated as an individual by an individual. The faculty member who conducts the interview will be interested in your theatre experiences, academic record, personal achievements, extracurricular activities, and plans for your artistic future. The best preparation for the interview is to be curious; come with plenty of questions about courses, instructors, programs of study, student life, and anything else you would like to discuss.
Application materials can be mailed, emailed, sent electronically (via The Common Application, Naviance, etc.) or uploaded through your Blue Demon Domain. To check the status of your application materials, view the checklist on your
Blue Demon Domain or call The Theatre School Admissions Office at (773) 325-7999. Please allow at least three weeks to process mailed materials. It is the responsibility of the applicant to ensure all materials are received before the deadline.
