General Audition Information

Admission into Performing Arts Project programs is by audition only. Live and digital auditions for our programs take place annually in January and February. We accept students equally from both live and digital auditions. Although we would love to meet our applicants in person, we understand that this is not always possible. We are happy to review applicants who send digital auditions and we do accept many students who audition this way each year. Many students also choose our Live Online Audition option. Information about this option can be found on the live audition page. This option combines the convenience of a digital audition with the personalization of a live audition. Occasionally, we may also ask digital applicants to participate in a follow-up interview.

Students may audition for Blueprint, Compass, and Panorama at the same time and can attend either a five-week option that includes both Blueprint and Panorama or a three-week option that includes Blueprint and Compass. Applicants will be asked to let us know which programs they would like to be considered for on their application. However, we will consider where we feel the applicant best fits and may sometimes offer a spot in a different program or additional program.

Each program has a slightly different audition procedure. Please follow the audition instructions for the programs you are considering. Panorama has the largest number of audition requirements, so if you submit the Panorama requirements, you will have also met the requirements for both Blueprint and Compass. In addition, if you submit the Blueprint requirements, you will have also met the requirements for Compass.

Students are notified about audition results via email by the end of the first week in March. All students who audition will be notified.
