Under the direction of Jacob Estes, students will focus on elevating their “triple threat” skills while studying:

  • MUSICAL THEATRE VOCAL TECHNIQUES (belting, mixing, telling a story)

Staccato Audition Information:

Please have two contrasting songs, one minute in length, each in the style of a musical theatre / pop song. (You will  most likely only be asked to sing one, but have two just in case we need to hear more).

  • Submission songs must be no longer than 60 seconds.
  • Please, NO a cappella singing
  • Bring an MP3 instrument track (on Bluetooth phone or ipad type device, we provide speaker)
  • Please be prepared to dance (arrive in dance-wear for the entirety of the audition)

  We prefer you audition in person, but if you absolutely cannot make it, video submissions or other questions can be sent to edu@bransonarts.org no later than August 19, 2023.  The easiest way to submit your video auditions is to upload it to YouTube, set the video to unlisted, then email the link to BRAC.
