Musical Theater Workshop I Placement Audition Information

MUSICAL THEATER WORKSHOP I HONORS

ABOUT THE CLASS: This Honors class is designed for students who have a specific interest in  developing their skills in all aspects of  musical theater performance--acting, vocals and movement. Successful participants in this class will have a strong familiarity with musical theater canon and repertoire and are expected to be comfortable singing in front of their peers. 

This class requires considerable work outside of normal class hours, as students are expected to rehearse their material independent of scheduled class times.

WHEN: Placement auditions for students interested in next year’s Musical Theater Workshop I Honors class will be held on Friday, April 20 from 3:15-4:15 P.M. in the Studio Theater.

WHO: Auditions are open to all Gibbons juniors and seniors, regardless of experience or prior drama class participation.

WHAT: Please prepare two contrasting musical theater songs (approximately 32 bars each) that best demonstrate your vocal ability and range.

Those auditioning are required to have sheet music in the correct key with proper piano accompaniment.

Please contact Mr. Ferguson with any questions.
