Theatre Arts and Theatre Arts Education Audition and Scholarship Details

If you are a potential Theatre Arts or Theatre Arts Education major, we offer scholarships ranging from $1,000 to $5,000 that require an audition or interview. Scholarships are talent-based and offered to students interested in all areas of the Theatre Arts at Lees-McRae. Performance based merit scholarships may be combined with other academic merit scholarships. Students should visit campus during an Open House (where you can receive a performing arts specific tour!) or contact Danielle Curtis at to schedule an audition.


For auditions, students should prepare the following:

  • One (preferably two) memorized monologues (contrasting styles should be chosen if performing two monologues).
  • If you're a singer, one or two songs (contrasting styles should be chosen if performing two songs) -- you may bring sheet music for the provided accompanist, or recorded accompaniment.

All students will be asked to learn a brief pedestrian movement combination during the audition.

For a technical interview, please bring a portfolio and a resume.
