We’re so looking forward to working with you this summer! Please read these instructions which detail how to record & submit your placement video.
This is not an audition, but is for our faculty to utilize in assigning students to small groups, specific repertoire for the group & casting solos. Our goal is to give everyone the opportunity to shine!
Please record a video of you performing a 32 bar cut of a musical theater or Disney song.
The submission due date for the video is June 15th. Below are 3 recommendations of songs you may choose to sing, or feel free to offer a different piece of your choosing. The song should be 32 measures, 1 min or less.
Please record this video using 2 different devices - one to record video, such as a phone or tablet, and another to play the backing track acoustically, perhaps with an external speaker to boost/balance the volume.
Our recommendations are "Colors of the Wind" from Disney’s Pocahontas, "My Favorite Things" from The Sound of Music, and "When I Grow Up" from Matilda. Use the sheet music & original track for practice, memorize the cut, and then use the instrumental track for your recording. Submit your recording using this form. Only faculty will be able to view your performance sample.
Colors of the Wind, beginning on page 18 at “You think you own”, and ending on page 20 at “colors of the wind”.
My Favorite Things, beginning on page 20 at “Girls in white dresses”, and finishing the song with “then I don’t feel so bad”.
When I Grow Up, beginning on page 1 at the start of the song “When I grow up”, and ending on the top of page 3, 2nd line at “when I grow up”.
We can’t wait to hear you, and dive in together in a fun filled, intensive workshop in Broadway at Brookline this August!
