Secondary School and College Transfer Audition Information

We're Coming Back Live!
Even before COVID-19 was part of our vocabulary, GTC was exploring opportunities to move toward virtual auditions.  The pandemic sped up the transition, and we have hosted two sets of virtual auditions for secondary school and college transfer students, but if we learned anything from our two years of masks and social distancing, it is the importance of live performance in the theatre realm.  This year, the Georgia Theatre Conference Secondary School and College Transfer Auditions will be held live in Kingsland, Georgia on Saturday, October 15. 
When registration opens, participating students will need to...
  1. Complete and print out the Audition Form (click here).  It is designed for  you to type your entries so that it looks professional for the auditors, but you will need to highlight or circle information to indicate your grade level and whether you are doing an Acting or Tech audition.
  2. Secure the required signatures and Guidance information (including the school seal!).
  3. Develop a 1-page resume to add to your audition form.
  4. Scan the signed form and resume together in one document. When you save it, please file as your first and last name followed by GTC 2021 (i.e. NancyDrewGTC2021)
  5. Email your information to the auditions coordinator.  Be sure to attach your audition form to your email!

   Suggestions for a Strong Audition

  • USE CURRENT FORM (click here). Using previous forms will result in having to resubmit your application.

  • USE A CLEAR, WELL LIT PHOTO 

  • OFFICAL SEAL - When your guidance office completes their portion of the application, the official seal is required.

  • BE YOURSELF - Let the auditors see who you are.  Talent is important, but it's also important to remember that they are trying to decide if they want to invest the next four years working with you.  That's about more than talent.  That's about character!
