Theatre Auditions and Portfolios

Theatre Performance
You will need two monologues, one serious (dramatic) and the other light (romantic or comedic). Both should be from plays or films, as opposed to novels, poems, or song lyrics. One monologue should be from the classical repertoire (Shakespeare, Moliere, etc.), and the other should be modern (post-1875). Preferably, your classical monologue should be in verse. Each monologue should be under two minutes in length or less when performed. Shakespeare, for instance, need only be about 20 lines of text.

Theatre Design
Students interested in theatre design, stage management, and technical theatre should submit a portfolio of designs, photographs, working drawings, prompt books, etc.

Submission Deadlines
Portfolios are due by the same deadline as your application for admission (see for specific deadlines).

Electronic Submission of Auditions or Portfolios
Auditions and portfolios in theatre and theatre design can be submitted electronically through the Portfolio section on your AppTracker. Your application status page will be available within about 48 hours of submitting your application for admission—we'll send you an email with a link to create a password and access your application status page.

Scholarship Guidelines
Scholarships are renewable annually as long as you remain in good academic standing. Your scholarships must be applied toward the cost of tuition, and the combination of Knox scholarships and grants and federal and state grants cannot exceed the cost of tuition. You may also qualify for additional need-based financial assistance, including grants, work-study, and loans.
