Welcome to Oklahoma City University School of Theatre Auditions!
We are excited to join you throughout this process. We understand that auditions/interviews are an exciting yet nervous time for both students and families. In order to minimize your anxiety, please consider that we understand that you are a developing performer, designer, or technician. We don't expect you to be perfect. Think about the audition process as an opportunity to share your talents with our faculty members. Don't think of it as a "life or death" situation. Be assured that the faculty listening to you is interested in you and your progress. We want you to feel at ease and to be able to perform to the best of your ability. We are on your side during this journey, and we want you to be successful!
Your fist step in the audition process is to apply to Oklahoma City University. You can do this online at OCU ADMISSIONS. There is an incredibly welcoming and able staff ready to assist you with any questions you may have with the university application. All you have to do is ask! To find your specific admissions representative visit OCU ADMISSION COUNSELORS.

At the time of your audition and/or interview, you are automatically being considered for theatre scholarship opportunities. You will find out within one (1) month of your audition/interview whether or not you have been admitted to the Oklahoma City University School of Theatre. At that time, if you are admitted, you will also find out whether or not you will be receiving theatre scholarship.
Because we want to make college as affordable of an experience as possible, I also encourage you to contact the Office of Financial Aid to find out other scholarship opportunities for which you may be eligible. Oklahoma City University offers incredibly competitive academic scholarships based upon SAT/ACT scores. For more information regarding these scholarships, as well as contact information to speak directly to a financial aid representative, please visit OCU FINANCIAL AID.
