Admissions and Auditions


Admission Application


The Department holds auditions each semester for theatre and musical theatre productions, the KSU TELLERS storytelling ensemble, the Kennesaw Improv Society (K.I.S.S.), Music Theatre Ensemble, and Music Theatre Practicum. Typically, these fall within the first full week of each semester and often in late April or May for early productions the following fall.

  • Actors should prepare a memorized one-minute monologue. For musicals, Students should prepare 32 bars of a Musical Theatre song and bring piano/vocal sheet music in the correct key.

    Rehearsal schedules for each production are provided at the auditions. For those interested in being cast, the department asks that you attempt to schedule your classes before 3:30 pm Monday through Friday, although directors will make exceptions for some afternoon classes.

  • Performers should prepare a one-to-five minute personal story of your own creation. Be prepared to discuss conflicts and obligations you have in the upcoming semester.

  • K.I.S.S. holds auditions each fall semester. No preparation is necessary. Students work with the existing ensemble and professional guest performers over a two-day period to learn and apply basic skills that support improv. The experienced members of the ensemble observe how those auditioning respond to the training and interact with their fellow performers. The ensemble ranges in size from 8-10 performers.
