That depends on a number of factors namely: School you're currently attending, school you want to attend, whether you'll be attending out of state or in state.

Antonio, If you go to this online site <https: www.collegexpress.com="" lists="" list="" colleges-with-excellent-theater-programs="" 234=""/> you will find a very long list of colleges with excellent theater programs. Pick a random sample and go to their web sites and you will find the requirements for admission. Colleges that are specifically Theater schools will probably ask you about your experience in theater in high school: acting, directing, design, stagecraft, lighting, costume design, play-writing and so on. These activities give college admissions people an idea about your area of interest. Your experience should be listed on your resume. If the school asks for an essay, you can express your interest in theater here.

If the school you choose is a liberal arts school, specific experience in theater may not be necessary for admission. You will be able to take a wide variety of classes in Theater and Drama (and Dance and Music) as part of your genera education requirements. These classes allow you to explore the field of Theater without becoming a theater major. No matter what path you choose, Theater or Liberal Arts , good grades in high school and an interest in extra-curricular activities that may or may not include Theater, are necessary.

I have been involved in the Theater all my life and I have found it a rewarding and challenging profession. I wish you the best of luck.
