Theatre Management Promotion

In the Theatre Management Promotion program, students receive hands-on, real world experience in stage management, marketing, promotion, and the administrative aspects of theatre. Students study theatre publicity and promotion, theatre administration and management, as well as media production, and graphic design courses making them dynamic contributors to any production.

Audition Requirements

For acceptance into the Theater Management Promotion program students must schedule and complete a Company Audition. The audition will consist of a promotions and management portfolio review (stage manager, box office, PR, ad sales, etc.). Additionally, you may submit a headshot and resume. Following the portfolio review, you will engage in an interview with members of our faculty. The Audition concludes with a campus tour, tour of the theater spaces, and a class preview may be included.
