The Preparatory program is a new program in 2022, designed for middle school students who may be interested in pursuing PAA’s conservatory level productions in the future. The Preparatory program is appropriate for serious, experienced middle-schoolers who want to take their singing, acting and dancing to the next level. Preparatory students should have previous experience being in fully staged productions, either at PAA or elsewhere. We expect these students to bring a professional level of effort and dedication to the rehearsal process, and will focus on building skills in small groups with more personalized instruction.
Every student who enrolls in the program will be cast, but the auditions are modeled more like professional auditions. Please come to your audition prepared with 16 – 32 bars showing vocal range, a short (1 minute monologue), and be prepared to dance. No acapella singing or backing tracks. An accompanist will be provided.
