The workshop will cover all 3 areas of skill needed in musical theater (vocal, dance and acting). To get the most of the class, each participant should come prepared with 2 audition songs (a ballad and an uptempo approximately 16 bars each, please bring accompaniment tracks on a device that can be connected to a blue tooth speaker or be prepared to sing acapella), 2 monologues (one serious and one comedic each approximately 2 minutes in length), wear clothing and shoes that will allow you to dance and a pen and notepad. If you do not have prepared audition material you can still participate. 

 

Topics that will be covered will include; audition etiquette, practicing your audition monologues and songs in a group environment, insight as to what the artistic staff is looking for at auditions, learning from other performers, how to prepare, how to remained focused when you are nervous, tackling the dance audition routine, dance technique and evaluation for the beginner through advanced level, having a variable repertoire of material ready for auditions.
