How Do I Audition?

Incoming Freshman:

Any incoming Freshman interested in pursuing a Theatre or Dance major may submit an optional art portfolio/audition video to enhance their overall UC San Diego application. The Theatre and Dance faculty will review the art portfolio/audition video and share their evaluations with UC San Diego’s Admissions Committee. Your optional art portfolio/audition video may help assist your overall application review.

Incoming Transfer Students:

At this time transfer students do not need to supply a separate application or audition video to be a Theatre or Dance major. When applying to UC San Diego make sure to select Theatre or Dance as your major.

Current UCSD Students:

Current UC San Diego students do not have to submit an art portfolio/audition video you can change your major to Theatre or Dance through TritonLink.

For Theatre Productions:

You must be currently enrolled at UC San Diego and an undergraduate student to audition for our productions. Theatre production audition calls are posted on the Galbraith Hall bulletin boards.  Many students have adopted the habit of making regular (if not daily) visits to Galbraith Hall in order to check the bulletin boards in the main lobby, outside the main Department office, for audition and casting notices and special announcements.  Any student can audition for any Theatre production, unless otherwise advertised.  Complete information about the schedule as well as the format of auditions may be obtained in the department office.

For Dance Productions:

Dance production auditions are handled differently.  Dancers should remain alert for announcements posted in the Molli and Arthur Wagner Dance Building regarding requirements and opportunities. (Dancers who have completed TDAC1 are, of course, encouraged to audition for Theatre productions.)
