UPTA 2021 will happen this coming February 5-8, 2021


  • At this point, we don’t know if conditions will allow people to attend in person or not, however, we are providing an ALL DIGITAL option should we not be able to gather in person in February.
  • ALL ATTENDEES, even if you’ve attended previously, MUST PROVIDE A 90-second VIDEO AUDITION PACKAGE.
    • (see criteria for video submission HERE).
  • UPTA 2021 will open registration on September 1st for Regular and Qualified auditionees and September 8th for Pre-Professional auditionees.
    • Again, ALL applicants must submit a 90 second audition video (currently, by November 1st).
    • You do not have to submit your video when you register. You can register, then submit your video separately by November 1st.
  • All videos will be adjudicated for UPTA 2021.
  • Once information has been submitted, a member of the UPTA staff will be in touch letting you know where your application stands.

UPTA is committed to providing a safe audition experience in February of 2021. Many details are, obviously, still to be determined, but stay tuned to this page for updates as we make decisions moving forward. As more details emerge, other pages on this website will be updated.

In the meantime, thank you for your art, thank you for your patience, and please, please, please... WEAR YOUR MASKS!
