Scholarship Auditions

Future Audition Dates to be Announced

Auditions will be held on the campus of The College of Idaho. Scholarships in the Department of Theatre & Speech Arts are highly competitive and are awarded to students who plan to major in theatre (theatre minors may be eligible as well if there are adequate funds) on the basis of acting, play writing, or technical potential and evidence of dedicated work. Students should demonstrate an openness to learn, an interest in growing as a theatre artist, and a specific desire to attend The College of Idaho.

Schedule your audition online now.

Scheduling an Audition

To schedule an audition time on campus, please contact Evonne Earl, the performing and fine arts administrative assistant, at 208.459.5275 or [email protected]. Appointments are in 15-minute intervals to allow for the student to perform audition pieces or show their portfolios and then discuss their work with the professor running the audition.

Video auditions may be accepted in some situations where it is impossible for the student to get to the C of I campus, but it is always better to perform a live audition as the interview is an important element. Try to schedule your audition as soon as possible before all the appointment times are taken. If these dates are inconvenient, please contact the department to ask about scheduling  another time. Written requests or questions may be sent to:

The College of Idaho, Department of Theatre & Speech Arts, 2112 Cleveland Blvd. Caldwell, ID 83605

Feel free to contact Joe Golden, the department chair, for more information at 208-459-5836 or [email protected].

The College of Idaho offers excellent educational and performance opportunities including small class sizes, individualized attention from a stellar and caring faculty, a friendly campus community, and the many benefits of a distinguished liberal arts curriculum.
