This class will focus on building a repertoire book with songs and monologues that can be used for future auditions. Students will learn to make informed decisions on how to pick specific pieces to audition with and how to build a versatile, audition-ready repertoire book.
Students will apply their age range, vocal styles, theatre history from Shakespeare to Sondheim, and more while selecting and preparing audition material. By the end of this course, students will understand how to prepare repertoire for an audition and will have the beginnings of their very own repertoire book. They will also have the knowledge of how to further expand their repertoire.
Tired of going from audition to audition not knowing if what you’re doing is “good” or “right”? Tired of picking a monologue that was easy to find and memorize just because it was the first thing you found? We’re here to help you change that for next time. Led by Taylor Body, students will share monologues and performance strategies while receiving individualized feedback. Taylor will use her experience and guidance to show students how to best perform their monologues. Students will learn how to pick monologues that best fit their auditions and their personalities. This is a great way for students to practice for upcoming auditions and work as a group to give constructive critiques.
