Applicants to the BFA Acting program must successfully pass an audition. For students wishing to enter the program in September 2019, the audition dates are as follows:
Toronto: March 23 & 30, 2019
Windsor: April 6, 2019
Acting applicants must apply to the University of Windsor, through the Ontario Universities Application Centre - www.ouac.on.ca. The BFA Acting Program must be specified as one of your program choices.
Applicants must then complete the BFA in Acting Registration form. Specific instructions on other requirements, such as personal references, photographs, and an audition fee, are included on the form.
On the day of the audition, please wear comfortable clothing and be prepared to move and participate. Wear soft-soled shoes with a low heel. Do NOT wear jeans or other tight, restrictive clothing.
Candidates are asked to memorize and prepare two monologues. Each monologue should be approximately 1 minute in length. One monologue should be by a character from a play by Shakespeare. The other monologue should be by a character from a published modern or contemporary play. The monologues should contrast with one another.
As part of the audition process, you will learn and present a movement sequence. The audition will also include physical and vocal warm-ups, a cold reading, and improvised scene.
Please print our Audition Guidelines for hints on how to prepare for your audition. Included is a list of suggested monologues, though you do not need to choose from this list.
