The Yale Institute for Music Theatre seeks singing actors with pop, rock, and contemporary musical theatre voices for the 2012 Institute. Auditions are scheduled for Sunday, April 22. Singers are requested to prepare 36 bars of an up-tempo song and one monologue (contemporary or classical) no longer than 1.5 minutes.
This summer’s two-week Institute will run June 4-17. Students will be paid through work study.
Established in 2009, the Yale Institute for Music Theatre is a program of the Yale School of Drama (James Bundy, Dean) that endeavors to bridge the gap between training and the professional world for emerging composers, playwrights, lyricists, and librettists. During a two-week summer residency in New Haven, the Institute matches the authors of the selected works with collaborators, including professional directors and music directors, as well as a company of actors and singers that includes professionals from New York City and current Yale students. The residency culminates with open rehearsal readings of each project, presented as part of the 2012 International Festival of Arts & Ideas.
