Beginning the week of September 10, you will be able to apply to the OU School of Musical Theatre through Get Acceptd.
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.
For Moonified auditions on November 16-17 in Dallas, Texas, or for our first on-campus audition on December 8, the deadline for submission is October 15.
The final deadline for all remaining auditions is December 1, 2018.
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. http://www.ou.edu/admissions/apply
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.
