FloArts Open House

After a year-long process of auditions and school visits, Open House at Florida School of the Arts is finally the time when the school auditions for you. It is a day we’ve designed to provide you with ample opportunities to get a sense of the place, where you’ll hear directly from the people you’ll potentially be studying with, teachers, and students. We hope you’ll take full advantage of this chance to get to know us.
Included in the day’s events will be an opportunity to see current gallery exhibition, Ezra Johnson Paintings and Animations, a Q&A with students and alumni, tours of our facilities, lunch with faculty, students, and staff, and a production of the musical “9 to 5”, based on the book by Patricia Resnick, Music and lyrics by Dolly Parton.
