(Applause Books). "I am your accompanist. You do not know me. I am the guy who sits behind the upright in the unflattering fluorescent light of the dance studio, a bottle of water on the floor, a half-eaten Power Bar on the bench, and your audition in my hands." Award-winning New York theatre composer and pianist Andrew Gerle pulls no punches in this irreverent, fly-on-the-wall guide to everything you've never been taught about auditioning for musical theatre. From the unique perspective of the pianist's bench, he demystifies the audition process, from how to put together your book and speak to an accompanist to the healthiest and savviest ways to approach the audition marketplace and your career. By better understanding the dynamics of professional auditions, you will learn to present yourself in the strongest, most castable way while remaining true to your own special voice the one that, in the end, will get you the job.
In Strategies for Success in Musical Theatre, veteran musical director and teacher Herbert Marshall provides an essential how-to guide for teachers or community members who find themselves in charge of music directing a show. Stepping off the podium, Marshall offers practical and often humorous real-world advice on managing auditions; organizing rehearsals; working with a choir, choreographer, and leads; how to run a sitzprobe, a technical rehearsal, and a dress rehearsal; how to manage the cast and crew energy for a successful opening night; and ways to end the experience on a high note for all involved. Throughout the book, Marshall emphasizes the importance of learning through performance and the beauty of a group united in a common goal. In doing so, he turns what can appear as a never-ending list of tasks and demand for specialized knowledge into a manageable, educational, and ultimately engaging and fun experience for all. Because the techniques in Marshall's book have been thoroughly workshopped and classroom tested, they are based in proven pedagogy and will be of particular use for the music director in acting as a teaching director: someone imparting theatrical knowledge to his or her cast and production staff. Marshall provides both extended and abbreviated timelines, flexible to fit any director's needs. Marshall's book is a greatly beneficial resource for music education students and teachers alike, giving an insightful glimpse into the range of possibilities within a music educator's career. Musicians and actors with varying levels of skill and experience will be able to grow simultaneously through Marshall's innovative teaching plans. Through collaborative techniques, steps in the book serve to educate both director and student. Thoroughly illustrated with charts, diagrams, and scores, Strategies for Success in Musical Theatre is an ideal companion for all who work with school and community based musical theater productions.
You don’t need to act to make a valuable contribution to a high school or community theater performance. Music plays a crucial role in many theater productions. This book introduces students to the demands put upon musical directors and performers from preproduction to show time, and outlines how the experience can translate into work in the real world.
BJÖRK »Niemand verbindet Herz und Verstand poetischer als SJÓN.« Island 1918: Die Spanische Grippe versehrt das Land, Vulkan Katla verdunkelt den Himmel und Island erhält endlich seine Unabhängigkeit. Zeiten des Aufruhrs und Aufbruchs. Mittendrin Máni Steinn: ohne Eltern, ohne Arbeit und zu allem Übel kann er weder lesen noch schreiben. Schlechte Voraussetzungen für einen jungen Mann in dieser Zeit. Aber Máni liebt das Kino und findet Rettung bei den Stummfilmen – und bei der schönen Sóla. Auf ihrem Motorrad entführt sie ihn aus der Dunkelheit und zeigt ihm, dass sich der Kampf lohnt, wenn man sich treu bleibt. In einer lyrischen, bildgewaltigen Sprache verwebt Sjón Historisches mit Phantastischem. Auch sein neuer Roman ist Weltliteratur.
Der Champagner fließt, die wundervolle Stimme einer Weltklasse Sopranistin erfüllt den Palazzo – die politische Elite feiert ausgelassen. Plötzlich fallen Schüsse. Eine Bande von Terroristen stürmt den Raum und nimmt die ganze Gesellschaft in Geiselhaft. Es gibt keinen Ausweg. Und noch ahnt niemand, was die verzaubernde, einende Kraft der Musik in dieser lebensbedrohlichen Situation auszurichten vermag.
An excellent primer covering technical, physical and mental preparation.
