Applying to the PATP - FAQ

Who will I be auditioning for?
You will be auditioning for Tim Bond, the head of the PATP.

Should I schedule a private audition if I'm participating in URTA?
That decision is up to each applicant. If you can afford it we would recommend a private audition, which will give you a guaranteed time to meet with the head of the program. We do admit applicants who audition either way.

Are there callbacks?
There will not be any callbacks in 2017.

Do I really have to sing at the audition?
Yes, we do require a short song at the audition.

Can I visit the program?
Yes, if you are in the Seattle area in the fall there's a good chance you'll be able to visit the program and sit in on a Suzuki/Viewponts class on Monday or Wednesday morning. Please email us at uwdrama@uw.edu to arrange.

Is the GRE required?
No, the GRE is not required for any of the MFA programs, only for the Ph.D.
