WVU Theatre & Dance at the FREDDY© Awards


WVU Theatre & Dance is excited to be able to offer two scholarships at this year’s FREDDY© Awards! The awards we will be presenting are renewable scholarships, equivalent to the university tuition for students interested in enrolling in WVU School of Theatre and Dance in the Fall of 2018 as Musical Theatre and Design & Technology majors. Those currently in their junior year are encouraged to apply and audition with us on Saturday May 20th.

Auditions will take place at the State Theatre in Easton, PA from 2:30-5:00. Requirements for the audition are provided below.


Musical Theatre

The audition will explore your abilities in Theatre, Music and Dance. Therefore please prepare the following:

Two contrasting songs
that show both your acting and vocal range and ability:

A one-minute monologue fully-realized and memorized.

Your entire audition package should be around 5 – 6 minutes total.

Dance call – After your vocal audition you will be asked to learn/perform a dance combination as part of your dance audition.

Present the best of you in this process; do not show or push some image or idea of what we might want to see. We want to know and see you in this interview and within your audition.

BFA Design Tech

An interview and portfolio review is required for admission and scholarship consideration for all incoming BFA Design/Tech students.

Interview: The BFA Design Tech interview is a chance for us to get to know you. We like to get a sense of your experience in and enthusiasm for theatre.

In a portfolio we are looking to understand your previous experience in theatre and related areas. A good thing to do is use a simple program like Microsoft Powerpoint to present your work. Show photos of productions you have worked on. If possible, include process photos of the specific things you did. The portfolio may also include any artwork, craft or construction projects which illustrate your interests and talent.

Register online by May 12th
