Entry into the BA in Theatre major requires an Audition/Portfolio Review.
Note: that if you have your Audition/Portfolio Review before being accepted into Seattle University, your acceptance into the major is contingent upon your acceptance into Seattle University.
We recognize that theatre makers emerge from a variety of backgrounds. You may be interested in more than one aspect of theatre or you may not have specific experience in any one particular area. We are interested in who you are as an artist, your creative expression (e.g. dance, sculpture, ceramic arts, music, poetry, knitting, short stories,) not just your theatre related experience.
