Session 6: August 14-18: Real Life Audition Prep Are you preparing for or thinking about auditioning for a musical at a local theater (eg, Stadium Theatre, BHS Stagemasters, Trinity) this year? This camp is designed for older students and will be led by Max Littman. During this session, students will explore everything you need to prepare for an audition including: understanding specific musical requirements and preparing accordingly, preparing your actor’s resume, how to present yourself, and how to choose an appropriate repertoire. 1/2 day sessions, 9am-12pm; Grades 7-12 only. (This session will take place at Michelle Lavin Music, 286 Maple Ave, Barrington.)

Session 7: August 21-25: Brush Up Your Musical Theater Chops Led by Michelle Lavin, this intensive vocal training camp is designed for the musical theater enthusiast who is looking to brush up on vocal technique and song expression. This is a perfect opportunity to help prepare for fall auditions. Excerpts and vocal selections from “Matilda”, “Wicked”, and “Into the Woods” will be used to explore proper breathing and support, pronunciation, and acting while singing. In addition, students will learn how to keep their voice healthy, basic anatomy of the voice, head and chest voice differentiation, and exercises for both voice and body to prepare for audition and performance. Campers will also have the opportunity to participate in “mock auditions.” Students will be grouped as follows: grades 2+3, grades 4+5, grades 6-8. Participants will choose two musical theater pieces of contrasting emotion, research their characters, apply the vocal techniques learned in camp, and perform them at the end of the week. Full day program, 9am-3pm; Grades 2-8. (This session will take place at Michelle Lavin Music, 286 Maple Ave, Barrington.)
