Recommendations for Preparing the Audition
CHOOSE A PARTNER
Select a partner who is able to rehearse with you during the fall semester and winter break. Partners may work with two different Ryan nominees but no more than two. Ryan nominees may not partner other Ryan nominees. Nominees must work with the same partner for both scenes. Choose selections that are appropriate for both of you but feature the nominee and meet the Ryan criteria. Read the contents of this website and its links for tips, rules, and explanations.

WIN A SCHOLARSHIP
The Irene Ryan Foundation awards sixteen regional and two national scholarships annually. One nominee and partner from every region will be invited to the national festival and the nominee will receive a $500 scholarship. The runner-up in each region will receive a $500 scholarship, but will not attend the national festival to audition for the national scholarship. Students and coaches are encouraged to consult their regional chair or regional Irene Ryan Acting Scholarship Auditions Coordinator for information on other regional awards. The Irene Ryan Acting Scholarships are, indeed, scholarships; so the Foundation disburses the award through a school designated by the winner, to pay tuition and fees for further education, not necessarily limited to theatre arts. Feel free to contact us at email@example.com with questions regarding the Ryans. We look forward to seeing you in January 2018!
