With a working understanding of the fundamentals of combining acting, singing and dance for music theatre performance, MTCC4 begins to focus on preparation for transition into the music theatre profession. Work may include classes on audition technique, mock auditions, classes on music theatre style and the rehearsal and performance of a full music theatre show (whether as a principal or ensemble/cover/swing). On completion of this subject students will have a clear understanding of industry expectations for auditions, for rehearsal preparation, process and etiquette and of sustaining a consistently high performance standard throughout a run of performances. As with all year 3 subjects a high level of preparation and autonomy is expected, with students exhibiting strong organisational skills and confident application of technical and artistic principle in self-directed work.
