HOW THE INTENSIVE WILL BE STRUCTURED

We will cap enrollment at 40 students.  We will be dividing students up into 4 different groups of 6-10 students max. These groups will be divided based on dance ability and experience.  

Classes will take place from 10:30am-6:30pm daily with plenty of breaks and virtual social time built in.

Most of the sessions will be small groups.  Each student in the group will receive primarily one on one instruction with the instructor. 

  • For voice, we are asking that each student come prepared with 2 contrasting musical theatre songs.  Each student will be guaranteed 2, 15 minute vocal master classes with Jason Michael Webb and 2, 15 minute vocal master classes with Allison Macri.  
  • For acting, we will ask each student to come prepared with a one minute monologue.  Each student will be guaranteed 2, 15 minute acting master classes with Sam Hartley.
  • For dance, we are looking to have each of the 4 groups learn different musical theatre choreography based on dance experience and ability with Con O'Shea-Creal.
  • We will also be offering mini sessions of learning led by our Lied staff and counselors!  Topics will include: Auditioning 101, How to Self-Tape: Auditioning in the Digital Age, So You Want to Go To College for Musical Theatre and The REAL World of Acting.

We are working with an accompanist who will record in advance of the Intensive the mp4 accompaniment track for your two songs.  These mp4 accompaniment tracks will be yours to keep for future auditions or performances with those songs!

THE VIRTUAL EXPERIENCE

We will be using Zoom.  We are compiling a list of items necessary for you to participate in this Intensive at home.  Things on this list will include a laptop, tablet or computer with a webcam (internal or external), internet connection and an additional device to play your song's accompaniment tracks from.  Please reach out to us if you have any questions or concerns about your ability to participate due to a lack of access to technology. 

A Lied education staff member or counselor will be assigned to each group of students and will be present in each of the sessions to ensure the safety of the participants and to help trouble shoot any issues!
