  • two contrasting monologues (such as one comedic and one dramatic, or one classical and one contemporary, etc.), for which the total recorded time should not exceed four minutes; and

Musical Theater

You’ll need to upload 

  • a headshot; 

  • a résumé; 

  • your completed Brind School information form;

  • two one-minute, contrasting songs accompanied by a backing track (They can be musical theater songs, but don’t have to be. Make sure the backing track does not include any vocals.

Be sure to have your work available to you when you have your interview. We will talk about your work and what each project involved, how you made design decisions, what you learned from the experience and what you think about finished pieces.
