Summer Vocal Institute: Musical Theatre Intensive

SVI:MTI Professional Program, June 29 through July 10, 2015
SVI:MTI Junior Program, July 6 through July 11, 2015


The Summer Vocal Institute: Musical Theatre Intensive is a personalized performance day program designed for singers, actors and dancers who want to integrate their vocal, dramatic and dance skills and take them to the next level in a short period of time. SVI:MTI is designed to address the wide-ranging needs of the young performer. Participants will receive daily instruction in voice, acting and dance with individual coachings on acting, blocking and character-work, plus scene rehearsals culminating in showcase performances. Each year we offer a new focus on training in the performing arts and Q&A sessions with college faculty and industry professionals.

Musical and dramatic materials are assigned to each student based on their audition performance. With materials and roles tailored to each individual, participants have great opportunities to take risks, conquer challenges, and grow as performers.

SVI: MTI participants will focus on process and developing skills and then they will put their skills into action while staging scenes taken from the whole world of musical theatre.


  • Open to students from age 14 to 20.
  • Acceptance to the program is by audition.
  • Live auditions are recommended.
  • Online audition links to You tube and Vimeo videos are accepted from out-of-state applicants
