What is "devised" theatre?!

Shadi Ghaheri, the Director of the piece has written a letter to give you a better idea about what the piece will be.

Please find the letter linked here: Dear Students…

Please prepare a 90 second monologue of your choosing and come prepared to show us your other talents, too.  Feel free to share 90 seconds of a song, a short dance solo, instrument solo or hidden talent. If you don’t have anything else to share, that’s okay, too – but be prepared to chat with our directors after your monologue!

If you do not have access to a monologue for your audition, you may choose from the examples below.

DANCE AUDITIONS
 

The Dance Department invites students to be part of the Fall 2021 semester dance productions! We are looking for dancers for our November WinterDance theatrical production (dress/concert dates of W – Sat  Nov 17 – 20), and also for several screendance and site-specific projects.  Dancers with all technique backgrounds and levels are welcome to join the production cast; students enrolled and cast in pieces will be responsible for attending weekly rehearsals (at times specified by individual choreographers).  Most rehearsals will be live and on-campus in the dance studio, but students will also have the option to be part of zoom rehearsals if involved with screendance projects. 

Students will have the opportunity to work with our distinguished faculty choreographers, and may be cast in multiple pieces.  Rehearsals will take place from late August through mid November; each piece has a 90 minute weekly rehearsal commitment.  Interested students should enroll in either DANC 10, 11, 12, 14, 15, 16 or 17 (new students should sign up for either DANC 10 or 15).

Enrolled students will be contacted prior to the start of the semester to determine scheduling availability and selection for pieces.  All casting decisions are at the discretion of the choreographers; the department tries to cast everyone, depending on scheduling availability.

Students MUST be enrolled in a production or repertory course (listed above) in order to be part of the live concert, screendance pieces, or the site-specific project.  For more information, please contact Deidre Cavazzi at dcavazzi@saddleback.edu .

We hope to dance with you this fall!

Applied Program

One of the most vibrant applied programs offered by any undergraduate music school in the United States, the Applied Program is the Saddleback Music Department's crown jewel. Competitive and comprehensive, the Applied Program enrolls students in a weekly applied lesson, an ensemble class (piano ensemble for pianists), and a weekly concert hour, a performance class required of all music majors, during which students demonstrate their performing abilities before their classmates and the Music Faculty, in a professional concert setting. Most Applied Program students also enroll in classes such as music theory, music history, and ensembles.

Due to recommendations from the Federal Government and the Centers for Disease Control, candidates for the Applied Music Program should submit an unlisted YouTube link of their audition to gkouritas@saddleback.edu(link sends e-mail). It will then be forwarded to all the other faculty. This application must also be attached to the email.

In the video, please introduce yourself, tell us what piece you will be performing, and then perform the piece. The Music Department will be accepting applications for the Applied Music Program until Thursday, August 26th.

Please submit your application ASAP! There is a limited number of available spaces. Spots will be filled on first come, first served basis.

When filling out the application form, please note:

1) Students must have Thursdays from 1:30 PM to 3:20 PM free to attend this class.

2) Friday times: please circle only if there are any class conflicts (work conflicts don't matter).

3) Piano classes are for non piano majors.

If accepted, students will be assigned a private teacher and receive weekly lessons. Performance opportunities will become more exciting, including a professionally-edited and recorded video-taped performance either on the McKinney stage or in the TV Studio. We are working on other ways to create valuable opportunities while keeping safe.
