If you are admitted to K-State, there is no audition requirement to become a Theatre major. You simply declare Theatre as a Bachelor of Arts- B.A. (foreign language courses required) or a Bachelor of Science- B.S. (additional math and science courses required).

Continuing Scholarships

Students may apply for and earn continuing scholarships each year of attendance at K-State. 40% of our theatre majors receive a scholarship specifically from the School of Music, Theatre, and Dance for their continued dedication and participation. Many other campus-wide scholarships are available.

Vincent and Jamey Stonestreet Scholarship

One of the many endowed scholarships awarded to students is the Vincent and Jamey Stonestreet Scholarship. Begun in 2014 by Eric Stonestreet, noted K-State Alumnus and star of Modern Family, the Vincent and Jamey Stonestreet Scholarship honors his father and mother for their giving nature and encouragement in following the dream of professional acting. The scholarship is awarded to juniors or seniors in the theatre program with a preference toward students with financial need. Minimum award is $1,000.
