YOUNGSTOWN STATE UNIVERSITY BFA Musical Theater Audition Day SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 21, 2015 SATURDAY, APRIL 2, 2016 10:00 – 1:00 P.M. Requirements and Itinerary
The Musical Theater audition consists of three parts: vocal, acting and dance audition.
The vocal audition consists of:
Two musical theater selections – one ballad and one up-beat
Select two different composers. It is preferred, although not required, that one of the selections is pre-1965. Selections are expected to be acted while singing and may be presented with movement or dramatic gestures, if appropriate.
An accompanist will be provided for you.
The acting audition consists of:
Presentation of two contrasting dramatic monologues lasting a total of 3 minutes. These monologues should demonstrate an applicant’s ability to work with differing types of dramatic material (serious/comic; classical/ modern; realistic/non-realistic; etc.) Your choice of material should reflect this demonstration.
An interview with the theater faculty. The applicant should be prepared to discuss their reasons for wanting to major in musical theater, and their short and long-term goals. (NOTE: Although it is not required, a resumé and/or portfolio is recommended).
The dance audition consists of: A small class will be conducted with all the students to determine the correct placement in dance technique courses. A warm-up and musical theater jazz combination will be taught. Come dressed in appropriate dance attire and jazz shoes.
