MUSICAL THEATRE MINOR

The Minor in Musical Theatre is by audition only.  Auditions are held once per semester. For your audition, please prepare the following:

  • 2 contrasting 32-bar cuts from musical theatre songs of your choosing.  “Contrasting” can mean whatever you’d like: ballad vs. uptempo, contemporary vs. classic, etc.  These cuts should not exceed 1 minute in length. You must have sheet music prepared in the correct key. No a cappella singing will be permitted.
  • A 1-minute monologue from a contemporary play (20th or 21st Century only, please) of your choosing. Your monologue should not exceed 1 minute in length.
  • You will participate in a short dance call.  You may choose to attend either the “mover” call or the “dancer” call.  Be realistic about your abilities when you choose which call to attend.

Audition date/times will be announced at the beginning of each semester, and will occur roughly midway through the semester.  If you would like to be added to the MT Minor Audition List, please email musicaltheatre@uncg.edu.
