New York, NY (PRWEB) January 13, 2014
When one thinks of musical theatre, New York City’s “Broadway” District almost immediately comes to mind. It is the mecca for musical theatre. So, it’s no wonder that the New York Film Academy has established itself as one of the premier schools in the field. Headed up by its Chair, Mark Olsen, the Musical Theatre School primarily consists of Broadway level instructors and is located at a brand new facility in Manhattan’s picturesque Battery Park.
In an attempt to discover talented high school students around the world for the 2014 Summer Camp, NYFA has organized a contest, awarding one winner with a 4-Week Musical Theatre Summer Camp Scholarship.
“The 4-week intensive provides each student with a substantial experience of the musical theatre program,” says Mark Olsen. “Acting, Dance, Voice and Performance Labs, Musical Theatre History and Music Theory are all taught by the same excellent teachers who are working with the one and two year programs.”
In an intensive like this, a student can learn how to direct their future studies, how to realign their professional approach and discover if they have the chops to pursue their dream with even more skill and devotion. It is also extraordinarily fun to be working on what you love to do every day, all day, for four solid weeks!
To enter the contest: Interested students must prepare a 60-90 second monologue from a published contemporary American play or screenplay and one short musical theatre song.
To be eligible, entrants are required to be 14-17 years of age as of June 29, 2014.
Participants must upload their audition piece to New York Film Academy Musical Theatre Facebook page by Friday, January 31st. Winners will be announced by March 3rd, 2014.
When submitting your performance piece, please include your full name, country of residence and name of high school you currently attend. Please address any questions regarding the competition to Marissa Lieberman at marissa(dot)lieberman(at)nyfa(dot)edu or call +1 (212) 674-4300.
