MT redirect to Acting
I am posting here instead of the drama/theatre forum because I am curious about others experiences who were originally MT applicants. If your child is a redirect to a program where there is a lot of crossover (i.e. they can get dance and vocal as part of the curriculum and they take classes with the MT students), some schools also say you can audition for musicals (and for MTs vice versa). However, given that you were not accepted for MT and are auditioning against those who were...would you even have much of a shot? I know my kid would be sad to not be in any musicals for 4 years (or longer). This is a hard question to ask at the schools because we don't want every question to the acting head to be about MT! Would love to hear more about people's experiences and if they are willing to name the school, even better!6 replies
