Fine and Performing Arts Admission

Interested in joining one of our renowned fine and performing arts departments. There are a few more steps to take.   

The fine and performing arts programs do require additional steps. You may receive an academic decision prior to your art portfolio review or audition/interview. Students accepted to the College academically, but not accepted to the program may still attend MMC and pursue another major.  


Acting and Theatre Arts

Admission to the Acting major and Theatre Arts major with concentrations in Performance, Directing,  and Musical Theatre must audition to be considered. Admission to Theatre Arts major with concentrations in Design and Technical Theatre and Producing and Management must interview to be considered. Those interested in the Theatre Arts major with concentrations in Theatre History and Perfomance Texts, Theatre and New Media, and Writing for the Stage may declare the major without an audition or interview. You should carefully review the audition and interview process.  

You must first  begin your Application for Admission. Afterwards, you will receive an email to set up your Admissions Portal. This will allow you to complete the Theatre Audition/Interview Form. You will want to complete this form as early as possible to schedule an audition or interview. December 1 is the recommended priority deadline, but we will continue to accept audition requests throughout the winter. If an audition date is full, we will place your name on a wait list or you may request an alternate date.
