Curtain Up

Are you a prospective USM Theatre Student? Don't miss the chance to experience our program by attending Curtin-Up Welcome Day. The day begins after Black and Gold Day and will include the following schedule of events:

  • Introduction to the program
  • Guided tours to prospective students and their families
  • Individual meetings with department faculty to learn more about programs of study
  • In groups, students will audition and/or interview

For the auditions and interviews:

  • Actors should prepare a 1-minute monologue entirely of their choosing, from any genre, style or period.
  • Actors may follow their monologue with 16 bars of a song of their choosing (a cappella only please), but singing is not required for audition.
  • Designers, directors, dramaturgs and stage managers should provide their portfolios for a portfolio review and interview with departmental faculty.

**All participants are encouraged to provide resumes and other supporting documents that best represent their work.
