DART Invitational

The DART Invitational is part of the admissions process for students interested in entering the Department of Dramatic Arts (DART) at Brock University.

All applicants should see this web page for more information about applying to Brock University: brocku.ca/admissions/apply
Your application will be reviewed, and if successful, a conditional offer of admission will be made as early as December.

AFTER receiving a conditional offer of admission from the university, applicants for the Dramatic Arts and BA/BED Intermediate-Senior (Dramatic Arts) programs must register for and successfully complete the DART Invitational before a final admission decision is made.  Under normal circumstances the Invitational would take place at the Marilyn I. Walker campus in downtown St. Catharines.

For 2022 we are planning to invite applicants to campus for the DART Invitational event. This exciting, full day of workshops will introduce you to all of the facets of theatre study that our program offers — from drama in education and applied theatre, to production and design, to performance and theatre praxis. Whereas most drama programs ask you to prepare a classical monologue and give you a two-minute opportunity to “impress the judges,” we will be taking you through a series of workshops. This allows you to walk away with some introductory skills, an original piece of theatre you’ve created with peers and the opportunity to engage with many of our faculty, staff, current students and alumni.

In the event public health policy requires us to meet our applicants online, we will proceed with the Dramatic Arts online Invitational Interview (Feb.-May). You will spend an hour in the company of Faculty from the Department of Dramatic Arts introducing you to the program and discussing your areas of strength and interest.

Details will be posted on this page as soon as they are available: brocku.ca/miwsfpa/dramatic-arts/dart-invitational

When is it?
The DART Invitational event will take place at the end of February/beginning of March and in early May.  You may register for either one or the other.

Information about specific dates will be posted in December.

How much does it cost?
The DART Invitational event has a registration fee of $80, which includes materials, snacks, refreshments and lunch.  If we cannot meet in person there will be no cost for the Dramatic Arts Invitational Interview.

How do I register?

Once you have received your conditional offer of admission you will be invited to register and reserve your place in the DART Invitational.
