Let’s take on the impossible and make it POSSIBLE! What is your challenge? Work one-on-one with Broadway’s Liz Kimball (South Pacific, World Goes Round, Hairspray) and make it a reality within a fantastic show, created in 3 days!
Students will, first, discuss their IMPOSSIBLE dream with Liz, then will begin the week with one-on-one coaching with Dana V. Music’s Dana Vachharajani and Katie McClave. After a day off for processing and memorizing, Liz Kimball will guide full music, staging, movement, and dialogue writing sessions to bring our show to the POSSIBLE!

Live Audition Day at Dana V. Music will be April 27, 2018 from 4:00-6:30 p.m.
On this day, students will be scheduled for live auditions and will be asked to present:
1) 32 Measures of an MT (musical theatre) piece of your choice. Please pick a piece that speaks to you and shows you at your best. It should be a piece that you feel shows your vocal ability, but also make sure it is a song that you feel comfortable singing and that you know well. Please don’t stress!
If you are not sure and would like to run some song titles by me or you need suggestions, please feel free to email with questions: (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Email Dana Vachharajani
2) Speak about 1 thing you would love to do (as it relates to musical theatre) but that feels IMPOSSIBLE.
Singing solo or with a group
Dance while singing
Presenting a Rap from Hamilton
It really can be anything that relates to performance and presentation. However, big or small, it is important to Liz!
IMPORTANT: Please notify office if you are unable to attend the Live Audition Day (April 27, 2018).
You will be asked to submit a video of your audition by April 27th. If you would like assistance from Dana V. Music to film, we are happy to help. Please send video submissions to: email@example.com and Title email: Bring it to Broadway Audition: (List student Name) MP4, Youtube links, etc. are all accepted!
