Drama Coursework Overview
The Pre-College Drama curriculum focuses on process rather than results. Nevertheless, the culmination of the program is an audition or portfolio review. These events are mandatory for all students whether or not they plan to apply to Carnegie Mellon for admission.
The audition/portfolio reviews take place during the last two days of the program. Acting and music theatre students will perform two contrasting, two-minute monologues. In addition, music theatre students will participate in dance and vocal auditions. Design/Production students will experience portfolio reviews and interviews with faculty.
Every student will receive an evaluation of his or her coursework along with advice for future development in the profession.
