"It was exhausting and very full but I loved it. It led to a lot of personal growth and I am so much more comfortable going into the college audition process now."

Coursework

You will receive three credits of undergraduate coursework while training in the fundamentals of musical theatre. This includes developing the skills and techniques necessary for singing, dancing, and acting. You will spend your days immersed in coursework focused on:

  • acting the song,
  • vocal coaching,
  • dance techniques, and
  • rehearsing and performing a review style show.

We prioritize preparing you for college auditions. You will receive guidance on how to select material and prepare for the prescreen auditions.

You will also attend a professional theatre performance as a group and have time to participate in recreational activities with students from across the U.S., outside of the musical theatre concentration.

Daily Schedule

This daily schedule is subject to change. A final schedule will be shared with participants approximately two weeks before arrival:

  • Classes from 9:30 - 11:30 am; 1:00 - 2:30 pm; and 3:00 - 4:30 pm Monday thru Friday.
  • In the evenings and on weekends, participants in the program will have the opportunity to engage socially in Summer Intensive Activities organized for students across the varied disciplines at the Ithaca College Summer College.  These may include hiking the waterfalls of Ithaca, trips to local establishments, swimming on-campus or off-campus and other organized events.
  • Participants should expect to engage in self-directed practice time outside of established class times.
