Christians in Theatre Arts recognizes the wide variety of post-secondary educational opportunities available to high school students who are Christians and desire to combine their passion for theatre with their passion for their faith. We strongly encourage students to consider spending their undergraduate years in a setting providing a Christian perspective on the theatre arts.
The Secondary Festival and College Auditions of CITA’s Emerging Artists Initiative:
- Connect high school theatre students with opportunities at faith-based college theatre programs, and
- Connect college representatives with prospective theatre majors.
At the Festival and Auditions students:
- Audition and display design portfolios.
- Interview for admission and scholarships at Christian college theatre programs.
- Compete for a CITA scholarship for theatre training at one of the participating schools.
Colleges may participate in several ways:
- Auditions and interviews: Attend the College Auditions and Secondary Festival in Charlotte NC, Azusa CA, or Waco, TX.
- Display: Promote your program at the Festival and Auditions. Consider bringing two representatives so that one can attend auditions/interviews while the other is at the display meeting students who are not currently presenting.
- Advertisement: Market your program to prospective students, and the teachers and parents advising them, in 500 programs printed and distributed at the Secondary Festival.
- Sponsorship: Cover the cost of refreshment breaks, for which your program will be recognized verbally to the group and in a sign displayed at the tables. Break sponsors also receive a full-page ad in the program and a display table.
