Your day begins with registration beginning sharply at 8:00 a.m. at duPont Manual High School Auditorium (the entrance directly by the red Manual sign). Please do not use the main entrance to Manual.
PLAN TO ARRIVE EARLY taking into consideration rush-hour traffic, construction and parking.
WHAT TO WEAR
FOR ALL ARTFORMS -- Wear business casual clothing (e.g., dress slacks, shirt, dresses, skirts, pants), but also dress comfortably!
We suggest wearing comfortable shoes because you may need to walk between buildings on the Manual and YPAS campus.
If you are a Dance or Musical Theatre student, we encourage to dress up for the college fair and change into your dance attire for the dance audition. Musical Theatre students should change back into dress clothes for the monologue/song portion of the audition (if participating in the optional MT dance audition only).
PARENTS & GUARDIANS
Please be aware that after lunch your role is primarily that of waiting for your student to complete their experience. But fret not!
There are many great restaurants and coffee shops in nearby Cardinal Towne (see “Places To Eat”). We highly encourage you to get out and enjoy the beautiful surrounding neighborhood of Old Louisville (a National Preservation District and America’s largest Victorian neighborhood).
Additionally, special workshops for parents & families will take place in the afternoon. You won’t want to miss these opportunities to learn about the specifics of filling out financial aid forms, the college planning process, and opportunities post-college. There will be a designated parent waiting area in the Manual Auditorium (where orientation and workshops will take place).
Parents are not allowed in the audition/review areas.
Please note: The GSA staff will be at Manual/YPAS working the event and will not be able to answer the GSA Helpline on the day of CCD.
