The Musical Theatre Program introduces students to the history and performance of musical theatre. Introducing a complete four year curriculum in Musical Theatre focusing on history, vocal, dance, and acting techniques, SJCCA Musical Theatre prepares students for a career in Musical Theatre.

There is a musical theatre tech class for students interested in stage management, costumes, lighting design, sound design, props and back stage crew. Currently, our Musical Theatre Tech students will be enrolled in a CTE Course involving State Certification on Adobe products.

Audition

Musical Theatre Auditions:

There is a yearly Fair Share fee of $150.00 assessed to each student. Senior MT students will have a fair share fee of $200 and it will include their Senior Prescreen Videos.

  • Students should come to the auditions with a 60-90 second selection of a solo from the Musical Theatre Repertoire (Broadway, Off-Broadway, etc.). Please include appropriate blocking and characterization while performing.
  • There will be no piano accompanist at the audition so make sure you have the accompaniment track on your phone or other digital device to perform your vocal solo. You cannot perform a cappella. There may not be any background vocals on the track.
  • Students must also prepare a 30 second cut of a monologue, preferably from a published piece of work (ex. Play, Musical, Movie, TV), NOT a monologue written especially for auditions.
  • New for 2023: Musical Theatre Students NO LONGER are required to be enrolled in chorus to be eligible for Musical Theatre. It is HEAVILY SUGGESTED that students audition and enroll in Chorus for their first year. Students may be required to audition and join chorus later in their high school career to gain ensemble vocal training, but that will be required on a case-by-case basis.
  • There will also be a Separate Musical Theatre dance call on audition day. Please make sure you check the schedule and be available for the Musical Theatre Dance audition as well. The following is required for the MT Dance call: Students should arrive to the audition in appropriate dance attire. All dancers must wear professional all-black dance attire (no sports bras or crop tops). Tees, leotards, tights, tanks, shorts, and/or leggings are allowed. Hair must be pulled back and out of face (secure bun is preferred for long hair).

Students must complete the vocal and acting audition, AND the separate MT dance audition in order to be considered for the Musical Theatre program.

Please email Mr. Romeo-Adcock with any questions.

Musical Theatre Tech:

            Students will be asked to fill out an application. During the day of auditions, students should show for the musical theatre times and sit for an interview with the musical theatre director. Acceptance into the program will be based on past experience, motivation for applying for the program, independent personality and ability to work as a team. Please bring a portfolio of previous work if you can (not mandatory).
