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...
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.
Secure the required signatures and Guidance information (including the school seal!).
Develop a 1-page resume to add to your audition form.
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)
Email your information to the auditions coordinator. Be sure to attach your audition form to your email!
If you have questions about the process, please contact

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!
About GTC Auditions
GTC Secondary School & College Transfer Auditions are open to high school juniors and seniors, and to college students who wish to transfer to a new school. High school students must meet minimum academic standards as noted in the audition form. Initial auditions are submitted online, with callbacks handled in-person at convention, or virtually, according to the policies and practices of participating schools. performed for an audience of college and university representatives.
Preparation: ACTING Auditions
Students will prepare a 90-second audition package featuring one monologue, two monologues of contrasting style, or one monologue and one song from theatrical repetoire. Song segments should not exceed 32 bars of music. A capella singing is not permitted. We encourage the use of a live accompanist over tracks. An accompanist will be provided at auditions.
Preparation: TECHNICAL THEATRE Auditions
Technical theatre students will use their 90-second presentation to introduce themselves to college representatives and share a little about their theatre experience and their career goals. Technical students are encouraged to develop an online (or hard-copy) portfolio and share the link on their resumes.
Preparation: THEATRE EDCUATION Auditions
Students interested in a Theatre Education major may prepare either an acting audition or a technical theatre audition, based on their area of strength. Students may select Theatre Education as the only intended major, or may select both theatre education and one other field. Only students who want to audition for both acting and technical theatre are required to submit two forms. Theatre Education prospects who submit two forms may add Theatre Education to both.
