“Finding the Right College, Conservatory, or University for You”
How to separate the good from the mediocre to find the best school for your needs. Do you have students preparing to audition for college performing arts programs? We have learned that most high school students don’t know just how highly competitive admission to college musical theatre and acting programs is. Most also don’t know that applying to these programs is much different than the typical college application process. In this workshop, students learn how to find schools that are the best fit for them. The audition and interview process is covered in depth. They’ll get tips on when to visit campus, what to wear for auditions, where to get head shots, resume formats, saving money on audition travel costs, and why applying to some schools is a waste of time and money. We encourage parents to attend this workshop.
“The ThesCon Prep Workshop”
State Thespian Conferences and the International Thespian Conference are fabulous opportunities for high school students to showcase their work and to be critiqued by professionals. In The ThesCon Prep Workshop, students will learn how to find the best song or monologue or scene for their skill level and type. They will learn how to create a believable performance of these pieces outside of the context of the show. Vocal coach Mary Ann Kehler’s students have been selected for Main Stage performances at every Colorado State Conference and multiple International Conferences for the past five years. She is joined by Andrea Kehler, whose monologue workshop is one of BTI’s most popular classes.
“The Business of Broadway: Separating Fiction from Fact”
Questions answered in this workshop include: What is the best way to prepare for a career in professional theatre? Do I need an agent? Equity vs. non-equity? How can I earn a living when I’m not in a show?
“The Belt Workshop”
The first requirement for professional musical theatre is a strong voice that can be used for every style of Broadway show. Musical theatre performers need to be able to sing from the bottom to the top of their vocal register without breaks or flips and need to be able to sing the same role eight shows a week, and sing it the same way for every performance. They need to be able to sing in a healthy belt and need to understand the physiology of their own voice, so they’ll know how to give directors what they need. The vocal faculty of Broadway Training Intensive has been preparing singers for professional careers in musical theatre for decades and knows how to create a healthy and diverse instrument that has the necessary stamina. Students will learn which exercises are the most effective for their voice type and how to apply the technique from those exercises to songs. They’ll learn where to find the best songs for their type and which parts of a song are typically the best for audition cuts.
You won’t find this level of audition coaching from such an experienced faculty in any other program. Students will get feedback during mock auditions run exactly like New York equity audition calls, hone audition material with the faculty, learn how to build an audition book and create professional resumes. We won’t GIVE them a monologue; we’ll TEACH them how to find their own monologues, which is an invaluable skill. They will be fully prepared to conquer future auditions at all levels.
