Class of 2025 Discussion

Greetings! WebCo parent here. Saw this announcement and wanted to share. Good luck to all navigating this very strange audition season.

From the Playbill website:
Faculty from theatre programs at University of North Carolina School of the Arts and Webster University will go live on Playbill August 7 at 1 PM ET to answer your questions about their specialized college theatre experiences, audition tips, and more.

Notable alumni of the theatre schools include Jada Pinkett Smith, Isaac Cole Powell, Mary-Louise Parker, Wesley Taylor, Gary Beach, Jacob Brent, Dave Thomas Brown, Jennifer Ehle, Billy Magnussen, Terrence Mann, Joe Mantello, Missi Pyle, and Lauren Ward (from UNCSA); and Jenifer Lewis, Marsha Mason, Jerry Mitchell, Norbert Leo Butz, and Kevin Earley (from WU).

The talk is part of Playbill and The Growing Studio’s weekly series College Theatre Auditions. Each Friday at 1PM ET, faculty from the top college theatre programs nationwide will join us for an hour-long live interview on and Playbill’s YouTube channel and Facebook page.

If you’re a high school student looking to get a degree in theatre, this is a chance to demystify the college audition process, find out what to expect from a college theatre experience, and to get to know the top schools and their faculty before making decisions on where to apply.

Interviews will be available to watch on demand after the live streams at
