Auditions are not required to declare a major in Theatre, however, they may be required to enter specific acting classes (usually 300 level or higher). Theatre production auditions are open the public, you do not need to be a declared Theatre or Dance major. To learn more about Theatre audition opportunities, please call the Department of Theatre and Dance at (360) 650-3876 or stop by PAC 395.


Entry into the Dance BA/BFA is by audition. Students may audition through the Technique Placement Class, the annual Winter Audition, or arrange for an individual audition opportunity.

Winter Auditions

WWU Dance recognizes that auditioning students in ongoing classes can give a better sense of programmatic fit for both students and faculty. Therefore the Winter Audition (Feb. 15) has been canceled. Please contact Cher Carnell at or 360-650-3893 to arrange for a campus visit that includes dance technique classes.

Individual Auditions

Auditions for level placement can be arranged on an individual basis for interested students able to come to WWU campus, while classes are in session (usually weeks 2-9 of any given quarter). Contact Cher Carnell, Associate Chair at (360) 650-3893 or to set up a potential visit.
