Calling actors with aspirations of attending a top BFA, BM, or BA Musical Theatre College Program!

Do you need guidance on the college admissions process like, how do I go about choosing the right material that showcases me, my vocal range and my unique personality? How do I create a professional and memorable pre-screen video? Do you want to know what college admissions officers are looking for?

If you have answered yes to any of these questions, ACANY’s 3-Day Pre-College Audition Intensive is for YOU!

Work all weekend alongside college admissions officers Wayne Petro, Associate Director of Enrollment for the School of Performing Arts at Pace University, and Kevin Kemler, Director of Fine and Performing Arts Admissions at Marymount Manhattan College! 

Our college prep weekend culminates in a showcase featuring more admissions officers from different universities on Monday evening.

Our 3-Day College Prep Intensive will leave you confident and ready to take on the daunting task of applying to college musical theatre programs!

A Class Act NY’s College Preparatory Programs have helped tons of students in their quest to gain admission to some of the most elite performing arts programs in the country! ACANY has students at The University of Michigan, CCM, Carnegie Mellon, NYU, Boston Conservatory, Syracuse, Ithaca, Pace, Marymount, Baldwin Wallace and more!

Day One: The 16-Bar Cut Audition (Saturday, August 15, 2-4 PM ET)
Start the weekend off with Kevin Kemler, Director of Fine and Performing Arts Admissions at Marymount Manhattan College. Kevin will help you perfect your 16-bar audition cut. We’ll discuss song interpretation and presentation, and how to perform with confidence in an audition as well as how to present yourself in a pre-screen tape.

Day Two: The 32-Bar Cut Audition (Sunday, August 16, 2-4:30 PM ET)
Sing a 32-bar audition cut for Wayne Petro, Associate Director of Enrollment for the School of Performing Arts at Pace University, and get feedback and coaching on your song interpretation and presentation skills. Wayne will help you hone your storytelling and performance skills, and ensure you’ll leave a lasting impression on admissions officers! 

Private Lesson: Monologue Work (Saturday, August 15 OR Sunday, August 16)
Every student will get a 50 minute private lesson with one of our admissions officers to review your monologue. With your coach, you will begin to break down your monologue into its purest elements. Begin to discover your objective, conflicts and acting beats within the text. We’ll help make any necessary cuts to the material, and make sure your performance stands out from the rest.

We will work to schedule your lesson after registration.

Day Three: Final Showcase and Q&A (Monday, August 17, 7:30-9 PM ET)
4 college admissions officers will be zooming in to watch participants perform a monologue and a song cut of your choice! You’ll receive written feedback from the panel a few weeks following the program. After the performance, the panel will host a Q&A for students and parents. Potential topics include: how to format a resume, how to choose the right headshot, how to slate in a pre-screen video or a live audition, how to make a stellar homemade self-tape, and how to effectively communicate with the music director, and navigate interview questions.

Panel Includes:
Kevin Kemler, Director of Fine and Performing Arts Admissions at Marymount Manhattan College
Wayne Petro, Associate Director of Enrollment for the School of Performing Arts at Pace University
2 More Guests TBA!
