Last call for registration

Registration is closing for tomorrow’s panel discussion! Have you registered yet?

I auditioned for one college when I auditioned for colleges.

My students in Milwaukee from 1998-2013 started out auditioning for two or three schools. By the time I left, musical theater was getting to the point where you had to audition for about five to guarantee they were getting into one. Things have changed. RADICALLY.

This article, from 2014, says that classical students should audition for between five and ten schools to get into one. It refers to three categories:

      1. Reach schools
      2. Probable schools
      3. Safety schools

I have heard that, for musical theater, you need to audition for between 15 and 25 schools. The competition is fierce. Even before COVID, schools started doing pre-screens to filter out who would get called in for an actual audition. It used to be just the top-tier schools, but now it’s all of them.

(I blame it on Glee.)

This will be an opportunity to find out what it takes to get into a well-regarded university. Our faculty panelists come from:

*Both listed in the top 30 programs
