These highly competitive grants in amounts up to $2,000 per year are annually awarded to excellent students involved in technical theatre or theatre productions, regardless of their major course of study.
Bring a résumé and letter of recommendation from your drama instructor/director. Applicants should prepare 2 pieces: either 2 monologues, or 1 monologue and 1 song. Both should be contemporary and be 3-5-minutes. Students who obtain a PAG for theatre productions are involved in acting, directing, stage management and production planning.
Present a portfolio of your experience that could include snapshots, playbills, etc., indicating range and level of experience. You should provide one written recommendation. Your audition consists of a personal interview. Students involved in technical theatre learn about and help produce all aspects of theatre design: set construction, lighting design, audio design, props, scenery, etc.
Parking is fairly available throughout campus. Feel free to park either on University Drive, in the Alumni Center lot or in the Cintas lot.
