Musical Theatre Technique

This class will take students through the entire musical theatre process, from pre-audition preparation straight through to opening night. Each student will choose a musical in which they will prepare an audition for, go through the audition process, experience a what callbacks are all about, then prepare a song from the show as if they were cast. This class will address the do’s and don’ts of auditions and callbacks, show research, character analysis, and proper show preparation. Students will leave this class with their very own resume, two audition songs, and a knowledge of what it takes to be a musical theatre performer in the “real world”.

*Please note: Classes do NOT conclude in any type of performance or recital. They are for educational purposes only, for technique and learning the craft!!
