Theatre Scholarship

We are honored that you have applied to Concordia University Wisconsin for the Fall of 2016. Because you have shown an interest in Theatre, either as a major or minor program of study, you may apply to audition for a Theatre Scholarship.

CUW’s Theatre Scholarship Auditions and Technical Theatre Interviews are on February 27th, and Saturday, April 16th, 2016. Your audition and/or technical interview will be used for consideration toward the various Theatre scholarships available from CUW as well as placement into our productions.  A major or minor in Theatre is required for a Theatre Scholarship.  All award recipients must participate in Concordia Players’ productions and take Theatre courses while enrolled at CUW. If you are NOT interested in a Theatre Scholarship but would like to participate in one of our productions, you may audition/interview in the fall.

To apply for a Theatre Scholarship Audition or Technical Theatre Interview, you must meet the following criteria:

  • CUW acceptance for Fall 2016; Admission no later than March 4th, 2016.
  • A minimum 2.5 cumulative high school grade point average.
  • Interest in participating in Theatre productions for the duration of your scholarship (up to 4 years).
  • For performance students, choose (2) contrasting monologues up to 2.5 minutes each, one comedic and one dramatic. If you are a musical theatre performer, please prepare a song as well, up to 16 bars.  As an accompanist will be provided, please send a copy of the sheet music, marked with the specific section of the song from which you will be performing.
  • For technical students, please provide a physical portfolio or resume to be reviewed at the interview.
  • Submit a Theatre Scholarship Application for your audition and/or technical interview:

    Performance Students Application

    Technical Theatre Students Application
  • Submit two current letters of recommendation.
  • After review of your Theatre Scholarship Application, approval will be made by the Theatre program to come for an audition and/or technical interview on February 27th, or Saturday, April 16th, 2016. Indicate your choice of dates on the application.

The Theatre Scholarship Application with all requested materials is due to Professor Lori Woodall-Schaufler by Friday, February, 19th 2016. Late applications will not be accepted. Overnight housing on the Friday before the audition is available by calling our Admission Office at (888) 628-9472.
