The Acting Program at David Geffen School of Drama at Yale will hold in person auditions in New York City, Chicago, and San Francisco.

Please read carefully the following COVID-19 guidelines for all in person auditioning applicants.

COVID-19 Audition Safety Requirements


Yale University requires all guests on campus to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19. All auditioning applicants will be asked to submit documentation supporting COVID-19 vaccination status prior to auditioning. Individuals are only considered fully vaccinated fourteen days after receiving the final dose of a vaccine authorized by the World Health Organization or the Food and Drug Administration. Additionally, we strongly encourage all auditioning applicants to follow the Center for Disease Control guidelines for vaccine booster shots. The CDC currently recommends those 18 years and older to receive a booster at least 6 months after their second dose of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines or 2 months after a Johnson & Johnson. Updated recommendations can be found on the CDC website.


At check-in you will be required to show proof of ID and proof of vaccination. We will accept proof-of-vaccination from all FDA and WHO authorized vaccines. Proof must come directly from the healthcare provider that performed the vaccination. You may display proof digitally or by presenting a physical copy.

At check-in you will also be required to bring proof of a negative PCR or Rapid Antigen test taken within 24 hours before attending.

At check-in you may be required to answer a health screener.

Masks are required inside all audition rooms and will remain on for the duration of the audition and check in process.


As conditions evolve, applicants planning to audition in New York. Chicago and San Francisco will be updated on any further requirements in response to the university’s latest COVID-19 health and visitor policies.

Should COVID-19 related factors further affect our ability to host in-person auditions at any point in the audition schedule, applicants will be notified with alternate options immediately.

We look forward to seeing you and appreciate your flexibility during this dynamic time.
