Reviews are held in two ways:
Reviews are also held during Fall Preview Days and Spring Accepted Student Open House Days. If you are planning to visit Seattle U during these events, it's a great time to set up a review also.
We recognize that theatre makers emerge from a variety of backgrounds. Therefore, we want to get to know you as a person. For this review process, we ask that you prepare a 3 – 5 minute presentation that highlights your interests and passions as they relate to theatre. Keep in mind that this is an Entrance Review for an academic program – we are interested in your critical and creative thinking as well as the level of your abilities and skills.
There are many ways you may communicate your talents or interests to us. For example, your 3 – 5 minutes of Performance/Presentation could include:
You can divide your 5 minutes in any way you want, e.g. a monologue and a portfolio review. Be prepared to answer questions following your presentation.
Bring all work samples with you: we do not accept work prior to the Review.
