Theater Scholarship Auditions and Interviews

Experience the FDU Theater Department at the Florham Campus

FDU attracts talented students from across the country to experience the multifaceted opportunities of our Theater Department. Whether your interest is Musical Theater, Acting or the technical aspects of the stage, students at FDU will learn from some of the most accomplished theater professionals as faculty.

A Theater audition is required for students interested in Theater as a Major or Concentration. The Theater scholarship is renewable and ranges up to $5,000 per year. Students interested in Directing, Playwriting, Design and Technical Theater Concentrations must have an interview or submit a portfolio for scholarship consideration.

As part of the audition experience, students can also:

  • Tour campus
  • Tour the 440-seat Dreyfuss Theater- site of our yearly main stage productions
  • Attend an Acting or Dance Class
  • Learn about FDU's international theater studies and internship opportunities with accomplished theater professionals
