How do I apply to be a theatre major at Georgia College?

What do I have to do to audition?

If you are designer, bring us a portfolio of your work.  If you are an actor, plan to do a two-minute monologue for us. If you are a singer, plan to sing a song for us a cappella. It's that simple.

Are there opportunities for freshmen to be onstage?

Absolutely! Many freshmen get lead and supporting roles in their first year.

Are there opportunities for a student to design or direct a show?

Yes. Many students begin by assistant designing and then go on to design mainstage shows. Students who have taken Directing I and II may want to consider directing for their Capstone project.

What is a capstone?

Capstones are the final stage of your theatre career at Georgia College. This work is your senior project and you will submit your interests to the faculty. Then you will have a chance to research, act, direct or design and create a portfolio of your work.
