Art audition

The 37-year-old Narrows Community Theater (NCT) has opened a full arts education program this summer. On July 10 at 8 p.m. and then a month later on August 7 at 8 p.m., NCT will sponsor “How To Audition for The Professional Theatre,” a pair of workshops designed to expand on the art of auditioning.

Theatrical director and producer, J. Michaels brings this popular series back to NCT for a third year. He will guide the participants on a journey that will start with song choice and confidence building and continue through the winding road of networking — before, during and after the audition.

Lectures are $5. All ages are welcome.

July 12-September 20, attend a ten week course for the actor yearning to break into musicals: Singing for the Actor, which meets every Saturday, 2-4 p.m. Musical theatre and operatic singer Mary Elizabeth MiCari trains students in the art of singing for the stage musical.

Starting with the lyrics and working your way up to public performance, this course is designed to arm artists with the tools needed to be part of the musical theatre scene: posture and breath support, voice and character type, interpretation and finally, performance. The course is for ages 15 and up; call for fees.
