MFA Acting Program

The MFA Professional Actor Training Program at the University of Virginia will invite eight talented actors to begin a three-year journey of concentrated, continuous study beginning fall 2023. Applicants must have an undergraduate degree in hand or show evidence of completing a degree prior to August 1, 2022. Our ideal candidate will have theatre credits beyond the undergraduate experience. Because our graduate students work alongside professionals at Heritage Theatre Festival and Virginia Repertory Theatre, we especially welcome applicants with professional theatre experience. Applicants should have an interest in teaching and show evidence of having the foundational skills, maturity, and confidence needed to teach (or assist teaching) an undergraduate performance course.  Details regarding auditions will be posted in Fall 2022.
