The portfolio review is a discussion with your evaluator about your interest in and ideas about your chosen area(s) of specialization, along with your accomplishments and experience in the field thus far.
Please bring the following support materials to your artistic review:
- A current theatre résumé
- P&D Application Essay – a one-page essay responding to the question:
"How do you imagine your college education will enhance your ability to make theater?" In addition to bringing a hard copy with you, you must upload your statement to the Drama Artistic Review portal, in advance.
- A portfolio in a single PDF, PowerPoint, Keynote or similar digital file to be presented at the time of the artistic review. You may present your portfolio on a laptop, tablet or similar device. Your portfolio should showcase three to five of your recent projects that highlight your contribution to the production. It may contain photographs, drawings, sketches, research, sound cues, drafting, etc. that demonstrate your experiences. Managers should present excerpts of one or two scripts that demonstrate your organization, coordination and communication skills. If you have had art classes – drawing, painting, photography, etc. – please include some examples of that work. In addition to bringing your digital portfolio with you, you must upload it in a single PDF digital file to the Drama Artistic Review portal by the artistic review scheduling deadline of your decision period.
You will have an opportunity to converse with your evaluator during or after discussing your portfolio. This is a chance for us to get to know you a little bit. We've looked at your work as an artist and now we want to learn about you as a person.
