Conservatory Auditions

Level: 1

Students must complete the equivalent of one year of improv training at The Second City (Improv Levels 1-5 or Improv for Actors 1&2) to audition for Conservatory. It is also recommended (but not required) that Second City students take at least one acting course before auditioning for Conservatory. Detailed audition information will be distributed to Second City students during the last level of their program (Improv 5 or IFA 2).

Students who have NOT completed the required Second City training may be considered for a Conservatory audition slot with at least one year of Improv training at an approved school AND at least one acting course post-high school. Interested auditioners who have NOT completed the required Second City training should submit their training information via this submission form. Approval to audition will be confirmed by a staff member, and an alternate program will be recommended if a Conservatory audition is not approved. Auditioners who have not taken classes with us are also recommended to create a student profile when applying to audition.

Students who are accepted into the Conservatory program are expected to begin their studies in the term directly following their audition. Deferments are not allowed. Please do not apply to audition if you are not prepared to commit to the program. If you have previously auditioned and have not been accepted and would like to be invited to the next round of auditions, please fill out this form. We would love to see you.

Audition registration will open two weeks before their set dates. Dates for our 2024 in-person auditions are: February 16, April 12, June 7, August 9, October 4, and December 6. Virtual auditions for online classes are also available, please inquire for details.

Please contact us at with any questions.
