College and University Representatives

Every year at our conference, MN Thespians welcomes dozens of colleges and universities and offers them the opportunity to meet, greet, and audition many of the best high school theater students in the state. Find out here how your institution can get in on the fun!

College Auditions

During conference, registered institutions participate in our Unified College Auditions. High school Juniors and Seniors attending conference sign up to present a two-minute performance audition or a technical portfolio presentation to a panel of college and university representatives. Following the auditions, schools post call-backs lists of students they'd like to speak with, and students are invited to visit the colleges' tables for a conversation.

This is a wonderful opportunity for our students to gain exposure to a variety of schools, and for colleges to meet potential students.

To register to participate in the Unified College Auditions at the MN Thespian Conference, please see the link at the bottom of the page.

Additional Sponsorship Option: Sponsor a Meal at Conference

Another awesome option to be seen and heard is sponsoring one of our meals at conference. Meal sponsorship includes signage recognizing your organization as a sponsor, an announcement at the beginning of the meal, and 3-5 minutes for a representative from your organization to talk with the whole group. The price is dependent upon the type of meal you'd like to sponsor and the labor needed to arrange the meal.

If you express interest in this option, our sponsorship coordinator will contact you directly to discuss options and pricing.
