Scholarships in Theatre Arts are available for incoming students who intend to major or minor in Theatre at Berry. Scholarships are available to students with experience and demonstrated talent in acting, stage management, playwriting and design/technical activity. Actors need to prepare two contrasting monologues, approximately 90 seconds each in length (“contrasting=classical/contemporary OR serious/comedic). Students who audition on campus are also invited to sing or dance
(16-measure selection) in addition to the monologues if they so desire,
but there is no obligation to do so.
Designers/technicians should be prepared to share a portfolio with design renderings, technical drawings (ground plans/light plots/costume plots, etc.) as well as production photos. Stage manager should be prepared to share prompt scripts and playwrights should bring several writing samples.
All students are advised to bring a head shot and current resume to the campus auditions. Auditions will be taking place February 23, 2013. You will also need to complete a scholarship application form (available at the auditions) and two letters of recommendation from teachers, directors, etc. who can speak to your qualifications and dedication to theatre. If you come to campus, we will also interview you and provide a tour of our facilities, an opportunity to sit in on a theatre class, and a ticket for a production if applicable. We also recruit at the Georgia Thespian Conference, the Alabama Thespian Conference, the Georgia Theatre Conference and by special arrangement with the Director of Theatre for those unable to partake of any of the above opportunities.
