College / University Auditions and MTA Scholarship Interest

The College/University Auditions is an opportunity for you to audition in front of colleges/universities that may be offering scholarship opportunities. This is a great way to meet and greet faculty from these institutions.

The fee for students participating in the auditions and the College Fair is $60.00, which includes MTA Membership fee, MTA Festival fee and audition fee. Auditions are closed to the public. Students attending the MTA festival with their school only have to pay an additional $15.00 to participate in the auditions.

In addition to these auditions, MTA will award one $500 scholarship to a deserving high-school senior who intends to pursue a degree in theatre (performance, technical, or design) at a Mississippi college or university. The award will be made during the MTA Festival.

The scholarship will be paid upon enrollment in a college / university.

If you are interested in being considered for the MTA Scholarship, please respond appropriately to the prompts. Scholarship auditions will be in conjunction with the College/University Auditions held Thursday evening.

All applications must be submitted by January 5. Applications may also be returned to you for revision and resubmission if deemed necessary.

By applying for the MTA Scholarship, I understand that I will also have to audition during the MTA Festival. For Design majors I will have to participate in the Individual Events

By participating in the Mississippi Theatre Association’s College/University Auditions I am expressing an interest in recruitment discussions with all participating colleges/universities.
