  3. I really like this website. It’s so much easier than trying to read the pamphlet on line. I also appreciate that you answer parent questions on here. I have a question about the resumes. I have already filled out the application. When should I send my child’s resume in and should we also bring a copy with us for the audition? Will the auditions be in person this year? Thanks!

    1. Thank you so much for the feedback. Please bring 3 copies of the resume that includes the headshot to the audition when that is scheduled. There’s no need to email it, but you may email it to to the designated person listed under the major if you’d like. Yes, the auditions will be in person.

    1. It is likely this part of the application. Demonstrate creativity and writing skills in a timed writing exercise based on a given prompt. For example, “As soon as the aliens landed, they…” or “The big day was finally here, and now this? What a disaster….”. We do not give the prompt before the audition.

  5. Hello, the school looks amazing. Is it open to students living just over the Tn line in Georgia? For instance Walker or Catoosa county?
