Audition Submissions Open for One Song Glory 2016!

Dear Teachers, Parents, Performers, & Past Participants,
The start of the school year means One Song Glory 2016 is on its way! If you are receiving this email, you may be interested in auditioning for One Song Glory or may know a young performer(s) to share this info with. We urge you to post this notice on events boards in your community, and to forward this information.

One Song Glory is a free musical theatre training intensive for performers between the ages of 13-19. No previous experience or training is required, only a passion for musical theatre and an eagerness to learn. Under the guidance of leading industry professional directors and music directors, students develop the skills, focus and self-discipline that theatre requires. In addition to learning, staging and rehearsing two musical theatre numbers to be performed in the final showcase, students will participate in a range of masterclasses, panel discussions, and workshop sessions led by top experts in the performing arts. Our goal is to offer participants a professional rehearsal experience, insight about the industry and guidance to developing a fruitful career in the performing arts. Above all, this is a chance to express our shared joy of musical theatre. This program is offered at no cost. We are committed to developing the performers of tomorrow, and believe that fees should never be a barrier to engaging in the arts.
