Submitting Your Audition to CTP

CTP strongly encourages live, in-person auditions for serious theatre students. The best way is to arrange a campus visit through our Admissions Office and tell them you wish to make a live audition part of your itinerary. A campus visit allows you to get to know us and vice versa. Also, you’ll have a great time exploring our beautiful campus.

We do allow other audition options for those who find it too difficult to arrange a campus visit. The next best option is a live Zoom audition in which you’ll arrange an audition time and date with CTP and perform live for us via Zoom. The last option is to record your audition and submit digitally to CTP along with your resume and optional portfolio.

Contact Logan Sledge for instructions on submitting your audition or portfolio.
