MTC PERFORMANCE TECHNIQUE*
MTC Performance Technique is a foundational class in our Musical Theatre Company core curriculum. Through a series of multi-week workshops, MTC members will improve their sight-singing skills, sheet music preparation, ensemble singing, acting technique, playwriting, scene study, and on-camera technique. Company members will work with a variety of faculty members on a rotational basis, who specialize in each field. Non-Company students may be registered in this class via *Director's Permission.
Advanced Audition Technique*
For those who took Rep & Prep, or for those who missed out, this is a collaborative experience involving multiple faculty members where students will regularly work on the Do’s and Don’ts of auditioning. Students will learn to select both song and monologue repertoire that specifically works for them and will help them stand out in auditions. They will learn about the different styles they should have in their rep book, what makes songs/monologue a certain style, and how to appropriately interpret and perform them. They will also have their work filmed from time to time so that they can best see what needs work and what has improved. This will be a 1.5 hour class. NOTE: This is considered an advanced course and as such students will be held to higher expectations than in other classes. There will be outside work.
COLLEGE ADVISORY AND PREPARATION
Instructor: Kaela O’Connor
This opportunity is aimed at the rising High School Junior and/or Senior and will incorporate up to 10 hours worth of private one-on-one sessions based entirely around YOUR schedule, with the option of adding more time should you feel you need it. We will put together a spreadsheet of schools, their respective academic and audition requirements, pre-screen requirements/deadlines, application fees/deadlines, etc. We will then spend time coaching your material to make sure you are prepared and talking wardrobe so you are feeling like your best self. This can be such an arduous and daunting process. It can be really helpful to have someone who recently went through it helping guide you. Essentially, I will be like your wedding planner, but for college!
