Brown | Trinity Rep M.F.A. Programs in Acting and Directing


Application, audition, and financial aid information

Brown University and Trinity Repertory Company recognize the ongoing, evolving impact of Covid-19 on practice and production in our embodied discipline.  To firmly center our current students and offer them the world-class education that Brown/ Trinity Rep provides, we have made the difficult decision to suspend our upcoming admission cycle.  Brown/ Trinity’s next application cycle will be for admission in Fall ’22.


To best meet the needs of our current students, we have added an additional, optional year of curriculum and production for our second-year and third-year actors and directors, who lost embodied opportunities in the shift to virtual learning in Spring ’20.  Additional time will be tuition-free, stipended at the level of each student’s demonstrated financial need, and health insurance coverage will be provided.    


Admission to the M.F.A. Acting Program is based on materials submission, a private audition, and a group callback held on the day of the applicant's audition. Each year, Brown/ Trinity Rep admits ten actors.
Admission to the M.F.A. Directing Program is based on submission of materials and a private audition and interview. Each year, Brown/ Trinity Rep admits two directors to our program.
