Choose a music theater or pop song from any genre and either shape it into a useful audition selection or discover why it's problematic. Topics include audition cuts, choosing material, personalizing songs, connecting, letting the music work for you, knowing your type, and making strong choices. Identify the structure of your song and use it to strengthen your storytelling. By looking at phrase length, rhyme, contrast, musical gesture, and surprise, you can uncover clues from the composer that can fuel your acting choices. Each singer/actor will work for 20 minutes each week.
