How do students turn in their CSA application?
Applications can be scanned and emailed directly to the Director, or turned in to Karen Stella at either campus or turned in at the administration office.
Does the application need to be turned in before they audition?
Yes. Applications need to be turned in no less than one week prior to the audition date the student is trying for. As long as they turn in the first 3 pages of the application, this will secure them an audition slot. Then recommendations and test scores can be turned in later, but they won’t receive a decision until their application is complete.
Can students register for Circle Theatre Company without applying for CSA?
NO. No one should be registering for Circle Theatre Company without applying and auditioning. Circle Studio Players students do not need to apply for CSA. CSA is high school only.
Doesn’t every new Circle student go into Studio players before they can be in Circle Theatre Company?
No. Circle Studio Players is our non-audition option for 7th-12th graders. Anyone can simply sign up to be a part of Studio Players as long as they also take the co-requisite core acting class (Actor’s Lab or Acting 1/2 or 3/4). Studio students are not a part of Circle School of the Arts and are not eligible for the Arts Honors Diploma.
