North Texas Drama Auditions

North Texas Drama Auditions (NTDA) is a nationwide audition organized, facilitated, and run by the Theatre Department at Collin College for high school seniors and junior college students looking to move into a BA or BFA program at four-year institutions.  This audition allows student to be seen by many institutions across Texas and the nation, who come to recruit for their programs (please see a list of our previous 4 Year Institutions in attendance last year, below). This is an amazing opportunity for students and programs to get connected.  Thousands of students have found their next program by auditioning through NTDA.  This year each high school/junior college program will be able to submit 5 actors and 5 tech/design to attend auditions through submitting videos.  We are proud to say that this is the 27th year we are hosting these auditions.  

This year we are excited to create a virtual event (due to the current public health crisis) that will still do what NTDA is set up to do: connect students with programs from across Texas and the nation and support students in moving on to the next steps of their creative journey in the theatre!  It will be an opportunity for students to learn to use technology that is becoming standard in the industry.  We will be providing the same high-quality auditions but moving them to a virtual platform. All communication will be virtual.   

The Faculty and Staff of Collin Theatre Center give you a warm welcome to participate in this year's event!  Event details will be posted here very shortly.  Please bookmark this page and come back soon!  Contact boxoffice@collin.edu with any questions.
