2022-2023 EAST COBB THEATRICAL MUSICAL THEATRE COMPANY AUDITION INFO
What does each company entail?
We are excited to announce auditions for the 2022/2023 East Cobb Theatrical Company. The ECT Company is a musical theatre training program designed for students who have a passion for and wish to further their skills in acting, singing, and dancing. Company requires a high level of commitment from students (a minimum of five hours of training per week, with the exception of our Silver Company) and a drive to improve and refine musical theatre techniques. Entrance into the ECT Company is by audition only and is available to rising 4th-12th graders.
Company members make a school-year commitment (August 2022-May 2023) and are expected to attend all rehearsals/classes unless absences have been cleared with appropriate staff or in the case of sickness. Company rehearsals are as follows:
Silver Company: Tuesdays, 4:30-6:00pm
Gold/Platinum/Onyx Companies: Tuesdays, 6:00-9:00pm
All companies members are required to take a minimum of two additional dance classes each week and can select from tap, ballet, Broadway jazz, and modern.
**In addition to weekly technique classes, our members also perform a Company-only show each year. The show that has been selected for the 2022/2023 Company season is Roald Dahl’s Charlie and The Chocolate Factory.
In addition to ECT Company, we will also be offering spots in our Pre-Pro Company. Pre-Pro will be an additional hour commitment during the week and will include musical theatre repertoire building, monologue study, and technical Broadway Jazz. Pre-Pro is designed for students that want to pursue a professional career in musical theatre and eventually enter our college prep program. Please indicate on the sign up form in the notes if you desire to be considered for Pre-Pro.
*Ballet and Tap classes will be open school classes so students can dance at their proper skill level whereas voice, musical theatre dance, and acting classes will be closed school classes and only have members of their company in them.*
