Design & Technical Production
Candidates will interview with the theatre design faculty and give a presentation. The presentation should last no more than five minutes and is designed to allow potential students the opportunity to show their work and share any information about themselves and their interest in the theatre.
Preparing For Your Interview:
Applicants should bring ANY of the following for their presentation:
• Photos of production work
• Examples of any drafting (may be architectural, industrial, mechanical etc.)
• Graphic work or projects (posters, programs, t-shirt designs etc.)
• Examples of carpentry, craft skills, sewing, etc.
• ANY other art or design-related work (art projects or schoolwork)
Examples of work are to represent your creativity, skills and interests. It is understood that you may not have professional documents drafted in the latest software programs. We just need to see anything that will give us insight to your creative potential and interests.
Photos do not need to be professionally taken or display full set designs. They can be as simple as snapshots taken by family members.
Art projects, design examples, and graphic design samples can be things such as a sculpture project from an art class, a school show poster you may have designed, or a dress you made for the prom. They do not necessarily need to be formal portfolio documents.
The most important thing is that they show your artistic merit. Remember, the faculty is looking for students with creative potential and integrity. Any materials you share in your presentation should reflect this.
Be sure to dress professionally and comfortably. Present yourself in a way that allows you to make the best impression possible.
