College Preparation Assessment

In this session, our audition coaches will evaluate your skill set and provide you with helpful feedback to help you begin your college audition journey. Students and parents will have the opportunity to ask any question about the college audition process.

Audition Guide + Timeline Session

Our audition coaches will help you break down the entire college audition process from start to finish to help you understand it more thoroughly.

Our team of audition coaches will walk through your in-person (or virtual) call-back auditions. Throughout this session, we will focus on specific aspects that adjudicators are looking for—including appropriate material, attire, and how to conduct yourself during the interview process. This is a crucial step towards feeling 100% confident in your upcoming college auditions.

STAR performing arts college database

We provide a 45-minute demo of the platform to help you build the college program dashboard that best fits your goals.

Filmed Prescreen Session (Songs & Monologues)

This includes a two & a half hour, private prescreen audition coaching with two of our audition coaches. During this session, our coaches will guide you through your college audition material on camera in one of our prescreen studio spaces. Your prescreen audition will be edited for your college submission.

Choreographed Dance

Most college musical theatre programs require a 30-60 second choreographed dance piece for the prescreen component of your audition. If dancing is not your strongest area, this option is ideal for you. Our dance coach will choreograph a 30-60 dance for your audition. They will help you prepare by providing a break down of your choreography and finally, will follow up with a 60-minute session to help you polish your routine.
*Please note filming is not included. You may add a dance prescreen filming session for an additional cost if desired. ($199)

Audition Wardrobe Session

Our audition coaches will help you select the perfect audition attire for your prescreens, callback auditions, and your headshot session.

Creative Resume

Our creative resume designer will provide you with a refined and professional resume that will set you apart from other candidates in the audition process.
