WSU music theater offers scholarships for new students.

WICHITA - Graduating high school seniors and college transfer students will have the chance to audition for Wichita State University Music Theater scholarships from 10am-noon Saturday, Nov. 9, at the Heskett dance studio.

Scholarships will be for the fall 2014-15 semester.

Auditions for the scholarships will consist of a dance combination followed by a performance of two contrasting musical theater songs and a short, memorized monologue. Applicants are asked to bring a picture and resume as well.

After a general meeting to fill out audition forms, WSU faculty will teach the students a short dance combination to perform. The dance portion of the audition will last 30-45 minutes. Students will have time to change and present their songs and monologues individually by appointment.

Songs and monologues must be memorized, and students are required to bring their own sheet music in the correct key. An accompanist will be provided; recordings are not permitted. Those auditioning will be invited to attend a performance of Guys and Dolls, directed by Wayne Bryan of Music Theatre of Wichita, at 7:30pm Friday, Nov. 8, or Saturday, Nov. 9, in Wilner Auditorium.
