Competitive Monologue and Scene opportunities:
Students have the option to compete a monologue or a scene with another student. BravO! Dance and Talent Competition offers the wonderful chance for theater performers to compete at Regional and National competitions. Each student must have an audition/meeting with teacher Hannah to be evaluated before determining if the performer is ready to compete.
Students who compete need to keep actively working on the craft of learning and growing as an actor and performer. To this end, students are required to participate in either session of a VDT theater class, or perform in a play or musical throughout the studio season at school, a community theater, or a professional theater.
