This program was designed to help students and parents navigate what can be a confusing and challenging application process for college theater programs. It is especially hard to get a feel for student life during this time. 


Our goal is to put Stagedoor Manor high school students in touch with our college alumni who have successfully traveled the distance and are eager to share their knowledge and experience. 


We will match you with 1-4 students available from our list of schools per your request. In addition, we’ll share over some cheat sheets and guidelines to make sure you’re getting the most out of this opportunity. This is a great way to find out about the schools you are interested in from students who actually attend these schools. 


The college application process is challenging and intimidating, made even more so by adding in auditions that come along with theater programs. We’re looking forward to connecting you with a friendly face who can help you through it all and give you some insight to make it easier!

*All proceeds from this program go directly to the college student alumni.
