Our junior class recently participated in Undergraduate Auditions at the Southeastern Theatre Conference in Mobile, AL. The 12 juniors who auditioned earned 357 callbacks from prestigious theatre programs at colleges and universities all over the country. Come see what all the fuss is about!
Audition for the Shades Valley Theatre Academy! We offer rigorous programs in all aspects of theatre, including acting, directing, playwriting, musical theatre, film acting, audition technique, dance, stagecraft, and stage management. Our faculty are expert teachers with significant professional experience. We are an award-winning program whose graduates receive millions of dollars of scholarship offers to colleges and universities around the country every year (literally!). Come and see what we're all about, and show us what you've got!
Final Open Audition:
-Monday, March 17, 6pm
All students interested in the Theatre Academy MUST be present at one of the open calls. For the open calls, no appointment is necessary. Just plan to arrive at the theatre no later than 9am Saturday or 6pm Monday with the necessary documents (see below). Parents will be sent to the cafeteria where they may meet with current students who will field questions about the program while the candidates audition. After all candidates have auditioned, parents will rejoin their students in the theatre where we will conduct a question-and-answer session. Callbacks will be announced via email no later than Tuesday, February 18 at 3pm.
All performers should prepare a monologue of at least one minute in length. In addition to a monologue of their choice, singers should also prepare 32 bars of a song from a Broadway musical, and come prepared with sheet music or a track that does not include vocals. Dancers should prepare a movement sequence and bring any accompanying music. Technicians should bring a portfolio, resume, and/or other representative work samples, and be prepared to interview with the faculty. A portfolio can include any work done on previous shows as well as any personal or academic artwork that you have done.
All students must bring to the audition a recommendation from an administrator at their current school (principal or counselor), as well as their current transcript. Students may choose to include a headshot, resume, and/or letter of intent with their application, but this is not required.
