The Texas Educational Theatre Association offers Texas theatre students the unique opportunity to audition for colleges and universities from across the nation, with a minimal investment and far less time and travel than trying to audition for all of those schools separately! Students present a two-minute acting or musical audition or a five-minute technical portfolio presentation for up to 50 different college/university programs. During call-back interviews on the same day as auditions, college & university representatives visit with selected students face-to-face to answer questions about their programs and ask follow-up questions to potential candidates. Do not miss this exciting opportunity to be seen by a multitude of universities and colleges with quality theatre arts programs! All Texas high school juniors, seniors, or transferring college/university theatre students intent on majoring in theatre are eligible to submit an application to participate.


DesignFest is a design competition and showcase for students, instructors and professionals which allows educators an opportunity to bring emphasis and recognition to the study and actuation of theatrical design and stage management. DesignFest is open to the first 100 participants who register. DesignFest is required for all students participating in the Technical Auditions. It is an opportunity for professionals and students to celebrate and share ideas about design, stage management and theatre technology. DesignFest allows participants to showcase their design work to over 1500 theatre artists from all over the United States and allows student participants to compete for cash awards!
