Boston and Regional Auditions

Each year, approximately half of all BUTI applicants provide a live audition and half provide a recorded audition. There is no preference for live vs. recorded auditions, and both methods are accepted and reviewed equally by the Institute. Applicants should not, however, submit a recorded audition if they are auditioning live.
