Scholarship Auditions and Interviews

The theatre faculty requires scholarship candidates to arrange an audition or interview through the Admissions Office prior to the December deadline each year (December 1, 2017). Students are welcome to schedule an audition or interview during an individual weekday visit to campus or during select group visit events. Students may audition or interview before completing Luther's application process. Please check the requirements (listed below) and complete the Recruit Me for Theatre form before scheduling an audition.

Audition Requirements


  • Perform a monologue or monologue and song (1 to 3 minutes), followed by an informal interview with a theatre faculty member.
  • The performance piece must be memorized.
  • An accompanist may not be available for every audition, so students should be prepared to sing a cappella.
  • Students should bring a copy of their music, in the correct key, in case an accompanist is available for your audition.

Design and Technical Theatre Interview Requirements

Design/Technical Theatre

  • Present a portfolio of design or technical work images and/or drawings during an interview with a theatre faculty member.
  • Portfolio images can be of designs (scenery, lighting, costuming, properties) by the student, or projects designed by another person but constructed by the student.
