Students will undergo a series of mock auditions spanning an array of musical theatre genres requiring a range of performance requirements that are to be a regular occurrence in the life of a performer. Experience will be gained in delivering a strong audition under pressure and presenting oneself professionally whilst honing pick-up and delivery skills. Audition-Technique across the disciplines will be addressed along with song presentation and physical presentation. Strategies for handling anxiety and general audition stress are also discussed. Drawing upon a detailed repertoire folder of suitable material collated across Levels 4, 5, and 6, students should find themselves able to select and present vocal material appropriately and to current industry standards.
A feature of the module is the professional panel. ‘Pro-Panel’ is an opportunity for students to showcase their talents in front of an invited panel of agents and casting directors. A day is given over to this event during the semester where students will individually perform, resulting in students receiving agent representation upon graduation.
- Mock singing/acting/dance auditions.
- Self-development plan
The students will also create a self-development plan that outlines strategies for life as a working performer, such as understanding Spotlight, Equity, tax & finance, CV’s & headshots, technical and creative departments.
