Step one: Apply
Apply to the Musical Theatre (MUTH) diploma program at Capilano University.
Step two: Schedule your audition
The School of Performing Arts will schedule your audition/interview.
Step three: Submit your documents
Prior to your audition/interview, please submit the following required documents:
- Letter of Intent: outline why you want to study MUTH at CapU and briefly describe your theatre background, career goals and training;
- Letter of Recommendation: from a teacher or theatre professional;
- A recent photograph.
Step four: Audition
You will audition for a panel of faculty from the Musical Theatre program. Once you have scheduled your audition time, detailed information will be provided, including a selection of monologues and songs.
There are two components to the audition:
- An individual audition, comprised of a monologue, a song and a short interview;
- A group audition comprised of a choreographed dance (which will be taught to you) using tap, jazz or ballet techniques and a group question and answer session.
While it is highly recommended that you audition in person, the Theatre department at Capilano University will accept digital (such as YouTube) audition submissions.
Information for distance auditions will be sent to you by the School of Performing Arts.
Distance applications include a monologue, a song, a short dance piece, as well as a short time in front of the camera answering some general interview questions, all of which we will provide.
