In 2021, the Inaugural Pittsburgh Unifieds was a tremendously successful event which kicked off the audition season in October, connecting talented students from all over the country with 20 Musical Theater and Acting Programs both virtually and in person.
We have been counting down the days to launch Pittsburgh Unifieds Auditions 2022-23. We have so many exciting things in store for 2022/23 and we hope you will join us!
Pittsburgh Unifieds Auditions is an early, cost effective, vetted, in-person, consortium style audition which benefit the students, their families and the program directors looking to recruit them.
The basis of the re-imagined process was conceived from a need that was observed in the popular Facebook Forum, which was founded 4 years ago by Marcie Yoho. MT PARENTS currently has over 3800 parents looking for and sharing advice about the college audition process. (WE LOVE OUR BTDT parents who have Been There, Done That!).
We know the earlier a student narrows down their lists with possible offers, the easier it is to schedule visits, connect with current students/faculty, and evaluate financial aid packages. Similarly, from the program's vantage point, the earlier a connection is made, the better they can manage the campus visits, the financial aid process and the commitments whilst freeing up valuable time to work with existing students in the Spring.
We are also aware of the financial burden of multiple auditions, applications, and travel expenses and how that adds to an already stressful process. It is the goal of PUA to reduce that stress to provide a more manageable and enjoyable process for the student, the family, and also the programs.
