If anyone has strong feelings on any of the schools of above or any schools with about five hours of Kentucky, I'd love to hear them.


I think it's a little more than 5, more like 6, but I'm a BFA MT student at CCPA (Chicago College of Performing Arts) at Roosevelt University in Chicago, and we have a great program. And it's getting better and better every year. A lot of seriously talented people.

Here are some people in my class and others, if you wanna take a look!

What's the dividing line between classic and contemporary? Say, a song from Sugar is not classic being from 1970's but would it be considered contemporary?

And likewise, when do you think it's safe to use a song from a contemporary musical? Obviously not if the original production is still playing.

Bah. These are the questions that plague me.


I've always been told that it's pre and post 1960.

Anyway, my schools are as follows: (still tentative)

Reach:
Cincinnati College Conservatory of Music (Cons. BFA MT)
Schools:
Missouri State (BFA MT)
Oklahoma City (BM MT)
Roosevelt CCPA (Cons. BFA MT)
Point Park (Cons. BFA MT)
Otterbein (Cons. BFA MT)
Ball State (Cons. BFA MT)
Safeties:
South East Missouri State (BFA MT)
Millikin University (BFA MT)
University of Missouri Kansas City (BM VP)

This is going to be one hell of a year.

Thanks so so much for starting this thread -- I feel like in general there are probably a lot of college students on here and even just being able to talk about college musical theatre experiences is so useful... it's stressful, amazing and fun all at once.

So yeah, thanks! Sweet info.

So what's the deal with Indiana University's BFA in MT? Acceptance-wise, I mean. I was under the impression that it was pretty flexible, or that most anyone could get in, but I just read that they only accept 10-12/year. How many audition?

In the college students arrange annual functions and playing different types programs on the stage like elocution competition, drama,and dance. they have to do lots of preparation for that. here i read your links for some idea about the college thread. i like one thing in your reading is reference and research online for preparation of audition which one is the best way for good performance.

Roosevelt
Ithaca (probably my top choice)
CMU

My list changed daily, so who knows where I'll actually apply to next year.

I remember wanting to go to one of those big musical theater schools so badly....but I'm sticking with community college. I'm planning to finish my generals for a liberal arts education and transfer for my BA in Theater Arts in the Twin Cities. --And I'll be working on a baking certificate as backup.

I'm not a musical theater major, but I've really enjoyed being a part of the theater program at my school regardless. But I have a friend who is at Eastman School of Music at the University of Rochester, and she is really enjoying it.

I need good songs for upcoming college auditions. I am a Caucasian female. I'm looking for one up-tempo and one ballad, as for most college auditions. I would like suggestions for belts and soprano songs! Help please!

^ What sort of songs are already in your repertoire? Also, I like your username -- it's crazy similar to my actual name haha I did a double take when I first saw it!

What type of songs would they expect, or like you to sing for a Popular music course? I have an audition in a couple of weeks but I have no idea what to expect.. and I have SERIOUS stage fright :crazy: :cry:

Will it only be the teachers that listen, or will there be other students there too? I am supposed to learn two contrasting songs.. But I have no idea what type of songs to sing, and it also says 'of approximately 3 minutes' but is it possible they will make me go on longer? Or should I just bring a backing track 3 minutes long? I seriously need help :cry: :cry: :cry:
