Thespian Scholarship Audition Tips

How do I prepare for my Interview?

If you are auditioning for a Thespian scholarship, you will have 8 (eight) minutes with the scholarship adjudicators, during which time you will interview and audition. If you work hard preparing your audition pieces and/or your portfolio, the interview should be easy. The scholarship adjudicators will be looking for clues to your character, your dedication to theatre, your ability to solve problems, your work ethic, and your personality. They will want to know about your involvement in your Thespian troupe and will probably ask specific questions about your activities. They’ll also ask you about your plans and goals; be ready to talk intelligently and confidently about what you want to do.
