Auditions & Portfolio Reviews
In addition to applying to CSU through the Office of Admissions, a successful audition with CSU Theatre faculty is required to enter all of the CSU Theatre Concentrations.
- For all CSU Theatre degrees, prospective students must submit the CSU Theatre program application on the Acceptd platform.
- Current CSU students must also complete a successful audition to change to or add the Musical Theatre Concentration.
- Your program application and audition/portfolio review is also your scholarship audition.
