Students ages 14 to 20 are invited to audition for summer intensives in music theatre and worship arts in the first Summer Art Series of the Alabama School of the Arts at University of Mobile (UM).
The Gulf Coast Music Theatre Intensive will be held June 7–16 on the UM campus. The Gulf Coast Worship Intensive is set for June 11–15. Both intensives are designed for exceptional students eager to dive deep into an immersive experience that challenges and refines their talents.
The music theatre intensive concludes with Gulf Coast Music Theatre Live, a fully staged production open to the public. Participants in the worship intensive will lead a public night of worship at the conclusion of their session.
Auditions are required for both intensives. Tuition is $700 for the Gulf Coast Music Theatre Intensive and $500 for the Gulf Coast Worship Intensive. Participants have the option of living on campus for an additional fee.
The Summer Art Series is part of The Academy at the Alabama School of the Arts at University of Mobile. The Academy offers year-round intensive training with private or class lessons for children, youth and adults. Programs are offered in music, theatre, art and dance.
The Gulf Coast Music Theatre Intensive focuses on refining performers in their singing, dancing and acting techniques in a performance-based environment. Students will be taught and coached individually and in classes in movement, voice, acting and monologue, with individual and group rehearsals. Students will also have the opportunity to practice auditioning skills and participate in various master classes.
The concluding performance, Gulf Coast Music Theatre Live, will showcase production numbers and solos from a Cabaret Solo competition selected by a distinguished panel of industry professionals.
The Gulf Coast Worship Intensive provides unique insight and training for the next generation of worship leaders. Worship Intensive is designed for every member of a worship team, including keys, bass, electric guitarists, lead vocals, background vocalists, drummers, rhythm guitarists and technicians.
Students will be coached by internationally recognized producers, technicians and worship leaders, with one-on-one coaching for specific instruments and vocalists. In addition to daily devotions, students will participate in masterclasses that include mic techniques, the business of worship leading, communicating from the platform, worship flow and worship planning, with question/answer sessions with current worship leaders and traveling musicians.
Students will be placed into worship teams that will be coached by staff of Gulf Coast Worship Intensive. On June 15, the worship teams will come together to lead a public night of worship.
Registration is underway and applications are due by May 15. For information on audition requirements and program details, visit umobile.edu/theacademy, or call the Alabama School of the Arts at 251-442-2553 or email email@example.com. (UM)
