Preparing for Theatre School

If you are considering choosing theatre, your post-secondary planning process should begin as early as high school. Theatre programs are competitive and rigorous. Therefore, it is important to plan your high school courses accordingly. Some of the courses you will want to take include English/communications, creative arts and music to ensure that you are well prepared for the schools and programs that make your list.

If you are still in high school and are thinking about studying theatre, there are several additional things that you can do to prepare and increase your chances of being accepted:

  • Your audition represents you to a university or college. You can practice your skills by participating in a drama or debating club at your high school. Your community may also have theatre or drama organizations you can get involved in.


  • Consider attending a summer or spring break arts or theatre camp to develop your skills and expand your knowledge of possible fields of study.


  • Undertake to read and study independently. This is a good way to develop interests, expand your knowledge and improve your vocabulary and reading comprehension skills needed for school. This will also help you if admission requirements include an interview, since you will be able to impress the committee with the knowledge you have built up of terms and issues specific to this area of study.


  • Validating your interest by volunteering and providing direct service to arts-based activities in your community is another good way to demonstrate your commitment and can make a difference to your being accepted into this competitive field.


  • Consider how you can develop leadership skills while you are still in high school. Admissions committees value applicants who can demonstrate leadership potential. You can acquire leadership in school clubs, volunteer programs, and through an internship or summer job.
