Deadline December 1, 2018

All students must submit a pre-screen video and complete an OU Musical Theatre application to be invited to an on-campus or regional audition. You will upload your headshot, resume, video clips, and an essay explaining your interest in our program. This process is separate from the application to the University of Oklahoma at large.

In addition, you will be required to provide two letters of recommendation from professionals who can speak to your talent, abilities, work ethic and potential for professional success.  You may upload the letters directly through Getacceptd.

As you are completing your application to our program, it is important that you also apply to the University of Oklahoma through the Office of Admissions and Recruitment.

In order to be considered for any academic or leadership scholarships through OU, you must apply to the University of Oklahoma prior to December 15, 2018.

Once the GetAccptd link is live and online, the OUMT GetAcceptd format will ask for your current headshot, performance resume, essay and 2 letters of recommendation as mentioned above. Guidelines for the prescreen video are as follows:

*Prepare TWO memorized musical theatre songs demonstrating legit/lyric style, and male pop/female belt. Songs should be contrasting in tone/style/character – and no longer than 60 seconds in length.

Select one classic musical theatre song written 1930-1969, and one contemporary musical theatre song written 1970-present. (Although contemporarily written, The Drowsy Chaperone and ...Millie sound classic and are appropriate for the 1930-1969 era). No a cappella singing.

*Prepare TWO memorized monologues (one comic and one dramatic) – no longer than 60 seconds in length.

Select a monologue from a Early-Mid 20th Century play written between 1900-1969, and a contemporary theatre monologue from a play written 1970-present. Your selections should be age appropriate, in the style of realism, and not require dialect, costume, or props.

* Not required: But, if you are trained in jazz, tap, or ballet, then you are highly encouraged to demonstrate your ability.

Appropriate shoes and dance attire are required (no costumes).
Please dance to music, not a cappella.
Your performance is limited to one (1) minute for each style demonstrated.
Your full body MUST be in view at all times but you may pause the video to change shoes.
