Ohio Unified Theatre
Auditions and Interviews

The Unified Auditions and Interviews is an excellent opportunity for senior theatre students to be seen by many theatre schools all at the some time. For one reasonable registration fee, a student can be seen by many schools all at the same time. 20 to 30 schools from Ohio and beyond participate every year. Student performers and technicians are encouraged to register.

The Audition Process

Current seniors are encouraged to attend the Ohio Unified Interview and Audition Day on Saturday, November 4, 2023, at Hilliard Darby High School. Ohio Thespians sponsors this event as part of the #OhFallThesFest23. It is a once-a-year opportunity for students to audition for Musical Theatre, Acting, Design & Technology, and General Theatre programs. Universities from across the state and surrounding areas will register and attend the event to see students and discuss potential opportunities. 

Students do not need to be members of the Thespian Society to participate. The Ohio Unified Interview and Audition day is sponsored by Ohio Thespians, but all Seniors interested in a career in the arts are invited to register.

Performers will be given three minutes to present their best work (singing, acting, or a combination). All students must sing live.  An musical theatre accompanist will be provided.

Technicians, Directors, and Managers have three minutes to present a sampling of their portfolio and discuss their wants for college.

Students can also participate in a dance call. Please note, Musical Theatre applicants are required to be at the dance call. A college level dance instructor will lead the dance call.

 

Once auditions and interviews are finished, universities will select students to callback and talk about their programs in more depth.
