  • What are the Satellite Auditions?

    Most everyone knows about the URTA Auditions; they're the auditions for URTA MFA programs that happen as part of our National Unified Auditions and Interviews. But what are the Satellite Auditions?

    The Satellite Auditions are a new addition to URTA's NUAIs for 2014. They're a second, optional audition available to all registered acting candidates, and are attended by Guest Recruiters from non-URTA member institutions. You can sign up for the Satellite Auditions right on your NUAI Application--just check the appropriate box under "Optional Items" and you'll be assigned a time slot for the Satellites as well as your URTA Audition (a $15 fee applies for adding the Satellites). Your Satellite Audition will take place the day after your URTA Audition, so there is no possibility of a time conflict with any follow up interviews you may have from your URTA Audition.

    Have you already registered for the URTA Auditions but you'd like to go back and add the Satellite Auditions? You can do that by clicking here, once you have received the scheduled date/time of your URTA Audition.

    So, who are the recruiters attending the Satellite Auditions? Degree-granting training programs that are not URTA members (and are not pursuing URTA membership). As of this writing, there are about a dozen great Guests already registered to take part. You can learn more about them here.

    The Satellite Auditions are a great added value for acting candidates that want to be seen by as many programs as possible during the NUAIs. We encourage you to familiarize yourself with the Guest Participants and take advantage of a second great audition for a very little added cost.

    The Satellite Auditions are only available to registered NUAI acting candidates.
