Auditions

Undergraduate

Auditions are required for admission to the Dance Program, the Music Theatre Program, and the BFA Theatre Performance Concentration.

Students must also be admitted academically by the University. We encourage students to sign up for an audition by the fall of their Senior year (or the semester prior to transferring), and to have a UB application on file in the Admissions Office by December 31st. A completed application includes all test scores, transcripts, etc. Students should audition prior to their matriculation at the University at Buffalo. Please do not wait to be accepted by the university before auditioning.
