60–70 students will be invited to campus in Minneapolis for call back weekend, held February 23-25, 2018. This is a great opportunity for all of us to get to know each other better through workshops and auditions as we work to build a freshman company. All costs are paid for except for travel to the Twin Cities. Letters will go out by after your audition to let you know your status post-auditions. Invitations to call back weekend will be by phone and email.
The weekend is not mandatory but is strongly encouraged. If you are unable to join us on campus, you will be encouraged to upload a video of your audition pieces before the weekend to share with the faculty who haven't met you. After the weekend, students will be notified of their status. Only 20 students will be accepted each fall semester.
