BFA PUPPET ARTS APPLICATION AND AUDITION
Each year we see an increase in the number of people wishing to be part of our program. Because facilities and resources are limited and we have a strong commitment to maintain the quality of programming that we offer, we require an entry audition at all levels.
University Application: Applicants for all BFA programs in Dramatic Arts must submit a completed application to the University of Connecticut Admissions Office. Information and application forms are available from: Admissions Office, UConn, 2131 Hillside Road, Unit 3088, Storrs, CT 06269-3088, (860) 486-3137. On your application, indicate your wish to enter the School of Fine Arts and to major in Design/Technical Theatre within the Department of Dramatic Arts.
Departmental Audition: Each year we see an increase in the number of people wishing to be part of our Puppetry Program. Because facilities and resources are limited and we have a strong commitment to maintain the quality of programming that we offer, we require an entry audition at all levels.
The audition process includes:
- a prepared 3-5 minute presentation in any expressive discipline of strength for the applicant
- an improvised presentation with objects provided by the audition committee
- a presentation of past work through a portfolio
- an interview. All auditions will take place on the Storrs campus of UConn.
*The applicant should make every effort to audition in person. If this is impossible, an audition and interview can be arranged via video recording and telephone. Video Auditions must be received by January 27, 2013
Auditions for slots in the BFA Puppetry class that will begin training in the Fall Semester of 2013 will take place on:
- Saturday, December 1, 2012
- Saturday, January 26, 2013
To schedule an admissions interview with the director of the Puppet Arts Program, please email Barabara Zizka at firstname.lastname@example.org or call the Puppet Arts Office at (860) 486-4568.
If you are admitted to the University of Connecticut but NOT invited to join the BFA Program after your portfolio review, you may still apply and be interviewed for admission to the Bachelor of Arts Program in Theatre Studies. The BA in Theatre Studies is a general, academic degree in Theatre. Please understand, however, that as a Theatre Studies student you will not have access to all of the advanced design and technical courses.
