I actually went to graduate school the very next year, after Dr. Hendel in the Department of Theatre introduced me to and helped me prepare for the University/Resident Theatre Auditions in Chicago.

Theatre Scholarship Award Auditions

The application for admission to the Fall 2017 semester at the University of Mount Union will be available in July 2016. Beginning in early fall of 2016, audition reservation forms for students admitted to the Fall 2017 semester will be available. The Visual and Performing Arts Scholarship audtion dates for students admitted to the 2017 incoming class are as follows:

  • Saturday, November 5, 2016
  • Saturday, February 18, 2017
  • Monday, February 20, 2017


The Department of Theatre offers two half tuition scholarships to incoming students who will major in theatre. There is also a blended scholarship available for students double majoring in both music and theatre.

These highly competitive awards are renewable for up to eight semesters and will be given to students who demonstrate a high level of competency and future promise in the field of theatre. In addition, other awards which range from $1,000-$5,000 will be given to incoming students who demonstrate talent in their area of interest and show promise as a productive member of the theatre department. All awards are based upon meeting terms set by the faculty.

To compete for these awards, performers will present an audition, and designers and technicians will present their portfolio for review. Students with multiple areas of interest may compete as performers and designers / technicians. All students competing for a scholarship will interview with the theatre faculty. Auditions and reviews for these awards are open to both theatre majors and non-majors who have been admitted to the University.

All awards are talent-based and offered regardless of financial need.

We encourage you to think seriously about your major strength in the area of visual and performing arts. Students are permitted to audition for only one scholarship. Mount Union offers visual and performing arts scholarships in art, music, theatre and a blended scholarship for students majoring in both music and theatre.
