Theater Program Supplemental Materials
Please note that the Department of Performing Arts only accepts supplemental materials for review. All applications for admission to Georgetown University should be sent separately to the Undergraduate Admissions Office.
Performance samples are not required as part of your Georgetown admissions packet. Artistic ability, however, can be considered as part of your application. If you think your theatrical ability will help your application, please submit supplemental materials, including one or more of the following:
1) Cover letter outlining your specific interest in the Department, your relevant experience, and how you envision being involved in the Performing Arts at Georgetown (e.g. as a theater and performance studies major? minor? supplemental academic courses and productions? extracurricular activity only?)
2) Performance samples (DVD submissions or link to a YouTube or online video only). All recordings should be clearly labeled with name, address, e-mail address, and the production and role performed. These can be taken from actual productions or can be monologues recorded specifically as “auditions”. Please keep work samples to 3-5 minutes. DVDs become the property of GU and will not be returned to applicants.
3) A resume, no more than two pages in length, including theatrical experience. Please outline any private instruction received, productions appeared in, and any technical experience you may have (stage management, lighting design, sound engineering, set design, costume design etc.).
4) Relevant letters of recommendation from current teachers, directors, and/or instructors in your arts discipline, and any other relevant supporting materials (production photos, reviews, etc.)
Students with exceptional strengths in other areas of theater (directing, design, technical theater etc.) may submit sample portfolios, production photos, resume, recommendations, and any other relevant material.
All materials should be sent directly to the Department of Performing Arts, where they will be reviewed. Subsequent inquiries regarding the status of your Georgetown University application should be directed to the Undergraduate Admissions Office.
Materials may be mailed to:
