Admission to the Senior Corps is by audition/interview only.

Auditions FOR NEW STUDENTS will be scheduled each spring from February-June. Students are asked to prepare one monologue (roughly one minute in length), preferably from a Shakespeare play.  (Monologues which are self-written or taken from a source other than a published play are not acceptable). For students who live outside New Jersey or are otherwise unable to audition in person, a phone interview combined with a letter of recommendation from a theatre teacher or director is an acceptable substitute for the audition.

by appointment only at the F.M. Kirby Theatre:
Friday, February 20th
Friday, March 6th
Monday, April 6th
Friday, April 10th

Please note:  Our audition policy has changed.  If the student has already been in our Senior Corps program, they do not have to audition.  Only students going from Junior Corps to Senior Corps, or brand new students to the Corps program will have to audition.

Students will have to prepare a Shakespeare monologue (roughly one minute in length). Auditions will take place at the F.M. Kirby Shakespeare Theatre in Madison, and we will meet you in the lobby at the time of your audition.  

Admission is on a rolling basis, so students are strongly advised to audition/interview as early as possible.

Prior participation in the Junior Corps is helpful, but not required. Previous Shakespeare experience is also not required.

Once you have been accepted into the program, a registration form will be provided to you.
Payment in full is required upon enrollment. If you need to pay in installments, please contact us prior to returning the registration form.

All payments are non-refundable.
Additional forms and information will be mailed to you upon enrollment.
