College Connection is a unique, one of a kind program, designed to help high school students and their parents navigate what can be a confusing and challenging application process. Through our programming, we offer three different options for students:


Private coaching sessions ranging in subjects that touch on every part of the audition process for colleges. Subjects include: Advising & Audition Material Prep, Monologue Coaching, Vocal Coaching, Dance Audition Prep, and Pre-Screen Choreograpy Prep.



Interactive Q&A forum sessions provide information about the various types of theater college programs through our Stagedoor alumni college students currently attending these fine institutions.



We use our massive alumni base to help you make personal connections and answer more detailed questions about specific programs.

We started our program to meet the needs of the many families that expressed a need for Stagedoor to help guide them through the complicated college application journey. How do I choose the right program? How can I speak to some students who actually go to my schools of interest? How do I tackle the audition? Do I need a coach?

As educators, we decided to make a program that is affordable. All fees primarily go to our educators and alumni. We help the students find their individual selves in their audition pieces, figure out how to look for a program that suits their needs, educate them on programs they haven't heard of yet, and bring our students to a place where they can breath a sigh of relief and feel the excitement in finding their new home, beyond Stagedoor.

Our program is not like any other, it is dynamic, informative, and helps the student elevate themselves to their full potential. Scholarships are available by contacting for more information. 

Stagedoor Manor strives to reflect and celebrate diversity in our programming, students, and staff. We are committed to producing work and creating environments that embrace the full breadth and beauty of our shared humanity. We are dedicated to making a welcoming and accessible space for people of any identity, background, or ability; including but not limited to: race, ethnicity, nationality or immigration status, gender identity/expression, sexual orientation, religion, age, physical/mental ability, appearance, socio-economic status, education level, and political viewpoint.

"I would like to thank you for all the help you have given me when it came to my college application and audition process. I was lost, had no experience, and had no one to go to for help when it came to my auditioning and applications, and you helped to set me on the right path and I greatly appreciate everything that you have done for me. I used two of the monologues that you recommended to me for all of my auditions. I have heard back from all my schools now and thanks to your help, I will be attending NYU Tisch in the fall."


"Your unwavering support, guidance, and belief in Griffyn's talents have made a profound impact on both Griffyn's artistic journey and our family.From the moment Griffyn stepped through the doors of Stagedoor, it was evident that this was a place where dreams could flourish. Your dedication to fostering creativity, nurturing talent, and instilling confidence in young artists like Griffyn is truly remarkable.Your passion for the arts is infectious, and it has inspired Griffyn to reach new heights and pursue their dreams with determination and enthusiasm. As Griffyn embarks on the next chapter of their life at Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) in Atlanta, I want to take this opportunity to thank you for being an instrumental part of their journey. Your guidance has helped shape Griffyn into the talented

 individual they are today, and for that, we will be forever grateful."
