Audition Technique


Take your monologue, dance moves, and vocals to the next level!

Break down your 16 bar cut with a musical director/vocal coach. Find the right key, the most powerful and flattering finish, while presenting yourself in a confident and professional manner.

Dance classes are for all levels. The goal is to polish your technique, feel confident, and move with assurance. Professional choreographers can show you tricks to nail those combinations.

What makes a monologue successful? Break down the levels of emotion and vocal variations to impress your audience. Learn what material is appropriate in any situation.

Stagedoor Manor Studio professionals are experienced; not just in performing, but in teaching as well! Work is done in 2-hour sessions so there is plenty of time for focus and one-on-one coaching. You’ll be working with several different teachers and guest artists each day!

There is a break for lunch at half day and, on Saturday, time for dinner out before joining the group to see a hit BROADWAY SHOW!
