Dec. 17, 2002 -- The University of Wyoming Department of Theatre and Dance will hold interviews and auditions for students interested in scholarships for acting, dance, playwriting and technical theatre. The highly competitive scholarship auditions/interviews will be held Saturday, Feb. 1, at 1 p.m. at the Crane Studio and Mains Dance Studio in the UW Fine Arts building.
Students also are invited to attend any of the UW classes on Friday, Jan. 31. The appropriate application forms and letters of recommendation are due by Jan. 15.
The department offers undergraduates the rare experience to act, design or dance early in their college careers, says Harry Woods, fine arts coordinator for theatre and dance.
"The opportunity to interact and learn from the faculty in a one-on-one situation is unparalleled in the region," Woods says. "With the region's newest acting for the camera studio plus a nationally recognized acting and playwriting program, the Department of Theatre and Dance at the University of Wyoming is well situated to offer the best undergraduate degree available."
