A decision regarding whether Auditions/Interviews for the 2022-2023 school year will be in-person or virtual will be made by October, 31, 2021 and updated here.

PVA Theatre Arts 

The audition process consists of a 15-minute audition and interview. During this time we will look to see how well you are prepared. We will be interested in your passion, your ability to take direction and your willingness to take risks. This process will also give you an opportunity to ask questions and learn more about our program. That way, you’ll be able to determine if we are a good fit for you as well!!

A parent or caregiver should attend your interview.

Audition Requirements

Applicants should prepare and memorize a monologue that is approximately one minute long.  Feel free to write your own piece, perform a monologue from a play, or find a stand-alone script online.

PVA auditions/interviews are friendly and supportive. This may be your first audition ever and we want everyone to have a positive experience. We strongly encourage you to begin memorizing your monologue well before your audition date.

PVA Technical Theatre

Applicants will complete an interview with our Technical Theatre Instructor. During this time, students are encouraged to reflect on their experiences with Technical Theatre, their ability to work collaboratively with peers and teachers, and why they are interested in exploring areas of Technical Theatre. This process will allow students to better understand the program by learning about the opportunities available to Tech Theatre students while studying at Central.
