BFA Musical Theatre Recital Guidelines Theatre Track
The BFA Musical Theatre, Theatre Track Recital is optional at the discretion of the Music, Theatre and Dance Faculty. Many seniors in the program have had adequate opportunity to demonstrate their performance skills in Mainstage, Orchesis and Hillman Opera Productions, and therefore, may not be required to take on still another major performance commitment.
For the student who does not perform a recital, there will be a music jury with a dance piece in the style of his/her choice (2 1/2 to 3 1/2 min.) and two monologues (one light, one dramatic, 1 to 1 1/2 minutes in length).
A Hearing will be held no less than three weeks before the proposed recital date. It will consist of a complete run-through of the recital with all segments in the final order, and including any transitional material. All three advisors must be in attendance for the hearing. It is the responsibility of the recitalist to schedule a room and time that is convenient for all three advisors as well as for accompanist and performance partners.
Recitalists must complete and submit a "Recital Proposal Form" to your acting advisor not less than seven (7) weeks prior to the recital date.
Recitalists must complete and submit a "Recital Hearing Form" to your acting advisor no less than five (5) weeks prior to the recital date.
Requirements for the BFA Musical Theatre Recital are on the Recital Proposal Form. The Recital Proposal Form is designed to help you in planning your recital in an efficient way. If you have questions about completing your form please contact Professor Charbonnet.
Time your pieces carefully. The faculty realizes that these will fluctuate as you rehearse, but it is important that you begin with as accurate a time as you can.
MUSIC TRACK Recitalists refer to the School of Music Handbook.
