In order to save you an additional expense, WA Thespians have decided NOT to use getAcceptd.com as our registration site. It would behoove you to go to getacceptd.com and start you FREE portfolio. 95% of college programs are using Acceptd as a way of pre-screening students by looking at your portfolio. They have access to your information during the audition/recruiting season and may go back to your file for updates for added resumes, video/audio clips. We highly encourage you to create a portfolio and then check the box that applies to being part of the Acceptd site. Showcase your talent at Acceptd so you can be seen by hundreds of arts programs around the world. In Acceptd, students can keep their profile information (under "Discover Me") updated and live as long as they desire. If they choose to make themselves "searchable," they will be seen by all 200 plus partners in the network. The "Discover Me" section is free to students. However, when a student decides to send an application to a particular program, such as a Theatre school, which requires it, they will need to pay them the additional fee required by each school.
All applications must be received by the due date giving the college auditors plenty of time to see if you have a portfolio in Acceptd. Follow rules for the application form – do not attach any additional papers and make sure your resume fits into the allotted space!
Q & A
Q: Who can audition
A: Only students who graduate in spring 2019
Q: Is there a required grade point?
A: Yes, a minimum 2.75 grade point average is required
Q: What is the price for the WA State auditions
A: The registration price is $40 for inducted Thespians and $50 for non-Thespians.
Q: Why audition for the WA Unified Auditions? Wouldn't it be easier just to go to the National Unified auditions instead of paying this additional audition fee?
A: WA State is the second stop of the year in the audition circuit. Students in the past have found that they can bypass the National Unified Auditions if they receive a callback from one of their choice schools here in WA State. If one receives a callback in WA, the college/university does not require a second audition at the National Unified's, only the callbacks at the individual school/campus
Q: Do I need to be available the entire day?
A: Yes! Especially if you receive a callback interview. Callback interviews go from 1:30 - 5:00 Q: Do I need to bring a lunch?
A: You may choose to bring a lunch. There is a Starbucks two blocks away. Some food may be available for purchase on campus.
Q: Where do I park?
A: There is a parking lot on the West side of the building. On 12th Ave N.E. between 67th and 68th on the right side.
