DCP offers the occasional day class based on specialty topics like Stage Makeup, Audition Techniques, and Stage Combat. Ages may vary from youth or adult. Workshops would meet for 2-6 hours based upon instruction component.


Choosing material for your musical audition and executing it in front of a large panel of masters takes as much practice, knowledge, and skill as your actual craft does. It is your one shot to show master teachers and directors who YOU are and why they would be lucky to have you in their production. Through the Musical Theatre Audition Prep Workshop you will learn how to choose material that highlights your strengths, determine how to stand out throughout the audition process and to soak up every moment that you have in front of the audition panel. 

The Musical Theatre Audition Prep Workshop will explore –

  • What to wear to your audition
  • How to prepare your music for an accompanist
  • How to incorporate acting skills while singing
  • Choosing the appropriate songs and monologues for the show or character
  • Choreography sample with tricks and tips to performing your best
  • How to enter the room
  • How to begin your pieces
  • How to navigate through the audition from start to finish
  • Headshot/Resume – Do you need a new headshot?  We can help you.   Also, bring your resume!  We will help you with the correct format, or build it!
  • What is the last moment of the audition?
  • Students will participate in a mock-audition. This is a great chance to demonstrate what skills they have polished, and places where they can continue to focus and improve upon. Please come prepared with music and several song options.

At the end of the program, you will walk away with an audition packet that will include -

  • Tips for Auditioning
  • Audition Songs based on vocal range and characters
  • Audition Monologue resources
  • Sample Headshots and Resumes
  • Additional Audition resources
