We are not looking for creatives to come in with all of the skills required to work professionally. This is the part we teach you. What we are looking for is your work ethic and willingness to take direction. If you come in prepared and are truly willing to take direction you are not only going to pass your audition but have a fn time doing so as well.


Assuming you have come in prepared and ready to work for your Audition/Interview, you are now set! and ready begin your pivotal steps forward into a professional, creative career. At this point an admissions advisor will gladly assist you in every step you wish from housing to part-time employment to securing financial aid. 

Story Institute is founded on the idea that everyone has a story and everyone also has a right to share that story. We are ready to do everything in our power to ensure you have a long and productive career that exceeds even your own expectations, we will do everything within our power to make sure it happens. We want to work with people who know their “why” in terms of this career. Why do you want to be a creative professional? Teaching someone how to do it or what to do is easy. But when some one truly knows WHY they want to do it, everything changes.

So worry less about how brilliant you will be in your audition or interview. We are looking for a show, we are looking at you as a person. We care far more about how hard you will work and how smart your approach will be and how willing you are to try new things than any other consideration. Break a leg!
