Auditioning for Musical Theatre
“I appreciated the great practicality of this class. I learned the real life experience of doing a musical audition.”
This class focuses on preparing the actor for musical theatre audition and performance, through careful attention to each actor/singer’s strengths and weaknesses. Emphasis will be on music and text interpretation, singing and performance techniques, relaxing and unleashing the voice, and selection of strong material. Students bring at least one memorized musical theatre song to the first class, and will work on several songs over the six weeks of the course. Special attention will be given to the video audition, which was becoming more common before COVID, and will probably be even more common now.
Online Class: Our Early Fall 2020 adult semester will take place entirely online via Zoom. Classes require live participation at the scheduled times using your own device. Zoom is most effective when used on a laptop, desktop computer, or tablet. Students using a cellphone to access class are likely to experience reduced functionality that may limit their ability to participate fully in class. Please review the technical requirements necessary to take part in an online class before enrolling.
