In the Contemporary Musical Theatre Showcase you will perform predominantly contemporary songs and scenes that focus on technique and styles. You and other talented students will work with a team of theatre professionals and specialists in a nurturing pre-professional environment. Students will pursue collegiate audition strategies that focus on successful completion of pre-screen and live audition techniques. Each day, you will study advanced techniques in voice, music, choreography, and acting, culminating in a performance in Interlochen’s signature Harvey Theatre.
