As part of the theater department, Perpich Arts High School premiered a two-year musical theater track in the 2021-2022 school year.
This new track enhances students’ overall knowledge of the art form and the skills within the ‘triple threat’ requirements of musical theater – acting, singing, and movement. This is an intensive and prescribed program which may include after school and some weekend commitments for additional program enhancement.
This program is designed as a pre-professional program for those students who are interested in pursuing a post-secondary education in musical theater or working as a professional performer.
Audition requirements: In addition to the elements for the theater program audition, students interested in the musical theater track will need to complete both a vocal audition and a movement/dance audition. The vocal audition will require the prospective students to present a memorized performance of a selection from the musical theater canon. The movement/dance audition will be a movement combination that will assess the prospective students’ knowledge and/or ability to perform the basic musical theater movement vocabulary.
