Applications & Fees

Students interested in applying for the Modern European Theatre Program should contact Sarah Lawrence College directly.

Admission to the Program is highly selective. Applicants must be in their junior or senior year at College or University and possess the requisite GPA and, in addition, will be required to submit a piece of work as part of the application process, as outlined below. 

All applicants should choose ONE of the following plays -

The Caucasian Chalk Circle by Bertolt Brecht

Cloud Nine by Caryl Churchill

Happy Days by Samuel Beckett.

Applicants selecting the Design elective should submit a set design (1 drawing) and costume designs (2 characters) for the play they choose.  Those selecting the Directing elective should submit a ‘pitch' paper (no more than 1500 words) explaining their choice of play and their approach to directing it.  Those selecting the Playwriting elective should submit a dialogue (no more than 3 minutes in length in performance), a short story or poem (no more than 1500 words) inspired by their choice of play. 

Applicants DO NOT need to demonstrate extensive experience of, only enthusiasm for and dedication to, their chosen elective. This is intended as a test of iniative and imagination - there is no set format.  We are interested in discovering how applicants respond to the play of their choice and the task of translating it into performance.

Application forms and further instructions for those applying for admission to the program are available from Sarah Lawrence College (see link below). Applications must be accompanied by a non-refundable fee of $40.00 and must be mailed by November 1st 2013.
