Competition is stiffer than ever to get into the “best" schools, and your decision to go to college and which college is arguably the most important career move you've made up until now. But, you know what, the college selection and audition process is so much more than choosing material that best showcases your talent.
We see students getting lost in the idea that if they just have "great audition material" then they'll get into the "right school", then end up on Broadway. If this sounds familiar, you are not alone. This is simply because, oftentimes, colleges put the focus on the audition, and it's precisely what they want you to be focusing on. The idea that if you do the right audition, they'll do the rest.
For those of us who have lived it, we know it's just not as simple as the audition.
Often overlooked and almost impossible to navigate is the ability to evaluate how the college's individual learning environments will enable you to be successful during and after college. There are so many unique paths to a career on Broadway, and truly understanding your unique strengths and individual needs goes a long way in determining where you will and should continue your journey. Some of the most talented and brightest end up at the “best” schools, yet never perform on Broadway, because they didn't take into consideration what to look for in a well suited college environment. The reality is, not everyone will thrive in every environment and it can be personally and professionally damaging if you select a college that is not a good match.
It is invaluable to consult elite professionals experienced in this unique area to make sure you're technically and mentally equipped for one of your most important decisions. Up until now, there hasn't been a program aimed towards this process that isn't one size fits all. We know.
