Chapman Theatre

<p>Lots of comments about the film school at Chapman. Anybody know much about the theatre dept. there? My D was just accepted as a Theatre major. She loves everything about Chapman but we just heard that the university won't be doing any Musical productions for the next 2 years due to budget cuts!? With all the money floating around that school, is the theatre dept. low on the priority list?</p>

<p>Also was told that scholarships are only offered to those who have applied for financial aid. That doesn't sound right. </p>

<p>Thanks for any comments!</p>

<p>That's not true about the scholarships. S did not apply for financial aid, but he received one.</p>

<p>Timely-how much did he receive?
does anyone know more about the theater Dept?</p>

<p>My daughter was accepted at a handful of schools with great to good theatre/MT programs around the country, but chose Chapman for theatre...also because she wanted to stay in California. She has met a number of the faculty and students and brushed all other acceptances aside until she received her Chapman letter. Not a lot of details, but since she is a career theatre student and thoroughly researched and visited where she applied, I think that says a lot about this program. </p>

<p>Timely, how long after letters are out do they send out scholarship info?

<p>I think it was 2 weeks or less after the acceptance that the scholarship letter came. S received the Chancellor's scholarship which is $16,000/year. Some here have received the Presidential which is $21,000/year.</p>

<p>Golden, it sounds like your D is a great little actress! Maybe my S can convince her to act in one of his films for school. :-)</p>

<p>I'm an actor and also got the Presidential for $21k. I'm still waiting to hear from USC and NYU but Chapman theatre/acting is a wonderful program and depending on what happens, I very well may end up there. They are starting a BFA Screen Acting program which will be the first in the nation!</p>
