Development of audition skills and practice continue in this subject, as well as further intensive acting the song classes (ATS), that may be delivered through classes or tutorials. A key focus is on rehearsal and performance of the Industry Showcase, to which agents, producers, directors and other key professionals will be invited. The content of Showcase will be created and shaped according to the individual strengths and skills of the student cohort. Showcase serves as the student’s introduction to the music theatre profession. As with all year 3 subjects, a high level of preparation and autonomy is expected, with students exhibiting strong organisational skills and confident application of technical and artistic principles in self-directed work. Students who are streamed into MTCC 5A will be involved in ensemble roles in the performance project (repertoire or new work) and will be streamed into Performance Project A. They may also be understudies or swings.
• Apply creative, analytical and technical skills in combination for music theatre performance to a professional level.
