This summer, our musical theatre camps have been combined to become Rubicon’s very first online Musical Theatre Production Workshop! During the course of four weeks, students meet daily through Zoom with actor, director and choreographer Kirby Ward (Olivier Award nom.) and Musical Director Anthony Lucca (L.A. Drama Critics’ Circle Award) to rehearse and perform a role in one of the great classics of the American musical stage! Young artists learn to analyze a script, develop a character, and work on scenes, with a focus on clear and committed storytelling. The program includes virtual classes in audition technique, improvisation, theatre dance, stage management, and voice, all taught by top professionals from the worlds of film, television, and stage. Each student receives private weekly vocal coaching from one of two New-York based Broadway veterans. Two afternoons a week, young artists also participate in a new program entitled Inside the Artist’s Process, an interview series and Q&A where only enrolled students can ask follow-up questions of Broadway and West-End actors, directors, writers and producers. (See Additional Offerings below.)
Auditions: A very simple video is required; if you are new to the theatre, please don’t be intimidated. We just want to hear you sing and see you move to get a sense of where you are on your artistic journey.
A Note About Performances: In the past, Rubicon musical workshops have culminated in live performances at the theatre with full production values. Although we have the rights to rehearse and perform Annie in our normal setting, we know that it can’t happen this summer due to health concerns related to COVID-19. We have requested permission from the licensing company Music Theatre International (MTI) to record a final performance for friends and family, but it’s important for you to know that at this time, we do not have permission to present a streamed online show. MTI is planning to announce available streaming rights in a few weeks and we expect to know then if it is possible. We will keep you informed. We do have permission to stream and record both Macbeth and The Noble Gnarble.
