Florida State University

From FSU’s website… “The Music Theatre Program is a joint program offered through the College of Music and the School of Theatre. The BFA Music Theatre Program is a highly competitive program which prepares talented students from around the country for professional careers. Students are offered a comprehensive curriculum with courses in theatre, music, and dance to provide them with the training and skills necessary to meet the demands of a challenging career. In addition to course work, students have a variety of performance opportunities every year, including two musicals each season.

Graduating seniors in the Music Theatre program also have the opportunity to participate in the Senior Showcase each spring in New York City. Students perform during the showcase for directors, talent agents and casting directors from all over the United States.

All applicants are required to participate in a dance audition, which will be taught as a class, with work in ballet, contemporary, and jazz. Appropriate dress is expected. You are also asked to perform, within individual ten-minute appointments, two prepared contrasting musical selections (one ballad and one up-tempo selection) and a prepared 90 second monologue within your casting range. These, as well as the dance audition, should demonstrate skill and the potential for development. An accompanist will be available for your musical selections. Please have sheet music arranged in a simple, orderly manner.”
