The Programme:
The first term project will focus on a Concert/Cabaret, enabling each student to create his or her own work. Working with a professional creative team, students will devise a show that demonstrates their artistic personality and voice type, and depending on ability may include acting, comedy and dance. This process will introduce students to solo cabaret work, which will be extremely beneficial in such a diverse profession. Working with Associated Studios coaches, small groups of students will secure a venue to present their work in front of an audience. Although Musical Theatre repertoire will be the bulk of most of these cabarets, some students may wish to explore Jazz/Blues/Pop or even classical genres. The Cabaret is designed to showcase the skills and talents of each individual performer and to encourage students to think as working artists creating work and opportunities for themselves. Students should start to research great Cabaret artists ranging from artists such as Lotte Lenya to Ute Lemper, Meow Meow, Frisky and Mannish, Elaine Stritch, Steve Ross to Camille O’Sullivan. Students should consider composers, lyrics, themes and styles they feel passionately about. As well as working on their Cabaret, students will focus on all the skills required as a professional musical theatre performer throughout the entire course including continuous work on audition repertoire, vocal technique, dance, acting and performance skills.

In the second term students will work on an in-house production. This is usually double-cast in order to give all students a chance to learn a larger role. The second term will also concentrate on career development skills. This will include audition technique, working on songs and monologues and getting feed back from a panel consisting of industry experts including Directors, Casting Directors and Agents. Additionally students will be given practical advice on marketing tools, including photos and CV’s. They will be guided in regard to their ideal casting and strengths. Appropriate audition repertoire will be chosen for each student. As Associated Studios works closely with the profession, industry trends and upcoming shows are always taken into account.

The final term will focus on audition technique and the final industry showcase. At the end of this term students should have a complete audition repertoire folder and other material required to help secure auditions and professional work. Students will be introduced to the rigours and disciplines of a professional company rehearsal process. Singers will also get the chance to record a demo tape, very useful to upload on casting sites such as Spotlight.
