HOW IT WORKS

For a low one-time fee, Performance or Design/Tech/Stage Management Students will submit links for videos, portfolios, your headshots, resumes, GPA, and class rank as well as all contact information. MAKE SURE to follow COLLEGE MUSICAL THEATER COMMON PRESCREEN CRITERIA. We share your information with ALL participating NATCA colleges from across the U.S. It gives programs the opportunity to view all prescreens and student info prior to November 17 & 18, 2022.

NEXT STEPS

Colleges let us know who they would like to see audition live. You will receive an audition appointment time and at invitational auditions Nov. 17 & 18 you will perform live from your location, using your laptop and camera, for all our colleges at the same time. You will follow the same 90 second time limit and can sing two song excerpts or a song and a monologue.

CALLBACKS & BEYOND

College directors will contact students directly to make callback appointment or schedule interviews or campus visit.
