Workshops
Our workshops are single-day multi-discipline coaching sessions.

Master Your Audition Workshop:

In their own reserved half-hour time slot, participants will go through a musical theatre audition and receive feedback from our directors that they would never get in an actual audition. Students will prepare a 60-second cut of a song, a 60-second monologue, and a dance combination (provided to learn via video link after registration) ahead of time. The audition panel will observe and provide suggestions for improvement that will allow the students to grow and capitalize on their strengths. Students can use this as an opportunity to practice their audition materials and skills before attending an actual audition.

The Dos and Don'ts of Auditioning Workshop:

To begin this packed full-day workshop, our directors will cover how to prepare and what to expect on the day of an audition, as well as some lessons in resume building, headshots, and self-taping. 

Participants will then break out to discuss best practices in each of the disciplines involved in a musical theatre audition. Acting tips include the differences between monologues and audition sides, how to prepare for cold reads, and how to pick the best monologue for you and your audition. Vocal tips include how to pick an audition song that shows off your best vocal abilities, how to work with an accompanist, what music materials to bring and how to best perform your song selection. Dance tips include personal presentation, studio etiquette and unspoken rules, technical focus points for maximum effectiveness, and easy ways to “put your best foot forward”. 

Students will then be instructed in the three areas of a musical theatre audition—learning a monologue, an audition song, and dance combination. The workshop will conclude with a full mock audition for the group!
