  • Schedule an individual interview/tour: Contact us to arrange an individual tour of the theatre department. Drop in on classes, meet some of our current students one-on-one, and complete your audition.
  • Send us your interview materials: Don’t let distance or other circumstances discourage you from becoming a theatre major at Miami. If you can’t make it to Oxford, send us examples of your creative work. Please only send photocopies or photos of original artwork. Video portfolios and/or taped monologue are also acceptable.

Audition/interview preparation

At your audition/interview, we want you to present two different examples of creative work you have done, whether in theatre or other related disciplines. Learn more about the interview and find suggestions for choosing what types of work to present.
