Musical Theatre Repertoire

& Coaching


ACTORS Ages 13+

As a musical theatre performer, your book is everything. What do you need in there, and how do you go about finding it? What do you sing when you can’t sing a song from the show you’re auditioning for...but have to sing something in the same style? How do you go about finding those? 16 bars? 32 bars? How do you decide on an audition cut? This will be an 8-week class for the musical theatre performer (intermediate-advanced). You will learn how to do this for yourself, and have accompaniment recorded just for you, so that you’re able to practice and perform in class. And auditions! We will focus on song selection, audition cuts, organizing your book, song interpretation, and performance.
