With a working understanding of the fundamentals of combining acting, singing and dance for music theatre performance, MTCC 4 begins to focus on preparation for professional auditions and the development of a role. Work may include classes on audition technique, mock auditions and extension work on repertoire to explore storytelling and character through the rehearsal and performance of show segments. On completion of this subject students will have a clear understanding of the form and standard expected at professional Music Theatre auditions, the extent and range of prepared repertoire of both songs and monologues they should have, as well as the preparation and application required for dance calls. 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.
