    you should be directed to a screen to complete payment If you aren t please contact us If you need to pay with a money order or cashier s check contact the URTA offices to arrange payment Where do the auditions interviews take place The auditions will take place in a theater space or in a large hotel conference room Interviews for directors stage managers and theatre managers as well as callback interviews for actors take place in the recruiter s rooms in the URTA hotel Portfolio reviews for candidates in design and technology are held in a large ballroom or exhibit hall at the URTA hotel What are the Satellite Auditions The Satellite Auditions are an additional audition open to URTA acting candidates for a small fee These auditions are attended by non URTA member institutions A candidate must be registered for the URTA Auditions to take part in the Satellite Auditions You can register for the Satellite Auditions on your initial URTA registration or add them later on You may also be able to participate as a walk in if there are spots available Candidates attend their URTA Audition and any resulting callback interviews on their assigned day The Satellite Audition will take place on either the previous day or the following day It is not possible to do both auditions on the same day The audition process is the same and you may perform the same material if you like Does any hiring take place at the URTAs The URTAs are open to producing theatres that may wish to recruit for their summer companies and past guest institutions have included Actors Theatre of Louisville PCPA Theatrefest Hudson Valley Shakespeare Festival Blue Man Group Jacobs Pillow Dance Festival the Glimmerglass Festival and others However most years our recruiters are made up primarily of MFA programs seeking graduate students Scroll up this page to see what institutions are registered to attend for the current year Are schools interested in older candidates Absolutely While most URTA candidates are just completing their undergraduate degree all ages are welcome to participate Most MFA programs seek to recruit graduate students of varied ages and backgrounds to provide a more diverse program for all involved Training programs are very interested in experienced candidates people who have spent some time pursuing their craft professionally Remember Members of Actors Equity Association are eligible for a discount on registration Can I register for more than one area Most candidates pursuing graduate level training are focused on a particular area of study acting design directing etc If you re unsure where your interests and strengths lie consider speaking with a trusted professor or mentor to weigh all your options If you re truly serious about multiple fields you may register in two areas without paying an additional registration fee Please realize though that a given graduate program will likely only consider you in a single area Candidates in design and technology may select up to three areas of focus on their registration e g costume scenic sound etc These areas will be listed alphabetically on the recruiter s roster What s the process for candidates in directing stage management and theatre management If you re a candidate registered for directing stage management or producing theatre management we will provide you a detailed list of the schools who are recruiting for that year and their requirements for granting an interview You will prepare a common packet for each school and send it to the contact person indicated in the list These common packets must be sent out before the winter break see the Candidate Handbook for more information about the common packet The letters of recommendation required for the common packet are not the official sealed letters with which you may be familiar These are simply three letters from persons who know and love your work Ask them to write a letter on your behalf and include it with your other common packet materials Once the school has reviewed your common packet they ll let us know usually in early January who they would like to interview in each city If selected URTA will arrange your half hour interview in the city you have selected You ll receive a preliminary schedule 7 10 days before the date of the interview Do I need a recommendation to take part If you are a candidate in directing stage management or theatre management you do need letters of recommendation as part of your common packet Keep in mind these are not formal sealed letters that you may have requested for college applications in the past Candidates in other areas do not need recommendation letters to register for the URTAs however you may need formal letters of recommendation later down the line if you are asked to complete school applications or if you are made a formal offer Can I request a specific day to attend Unfortunately no you cannot choose your date If you have a conflict with a specific date please indicate it in the Schedule Conflicts box on your registration and we will do our best to accommodate you Please don t simply request I must audition on Tuesday We need to know what your conflict is in order to try and accommodate it Should I schedule private auditions with URTA schools The value of the URTA Auditions Interviews are that they preclude the need for individual auditions Some of our members only recruit via the URTAs However we always suggest that you be your own best advocate If you have keen interest in a particular school you should feel free to send them your headshot resume or a link to your design portfolio along with a note expressing your interest to that particular program You can do this weeks in advance of the URTAs If a school knows you are interested they may seek you out the day of your audition or portfolio review By reaching out you ve
