The Long Center’s College Audition Program (CAP) offers high school students rigorous preparation for the college audition process. Carefully structured to offer students and their families individualized consultation, training, and practical preparation for their musical theatre college auditions, the program grows in intensity as senior year approaches.
College Audition Program runs through September – February.
Program directors Ginger Morris and Adam Roberts are thrilled to bring to CAP a combined 30 years of experience training high school students for college auditions. Former students have attended such prestigious schools as The Boston Conservatory, Carnegie Mellon, CCM, Elon, Ithaca, Juilliard, Millikin, NYU, OCU, OU, Pace, Rider, Texas State, UT, Webster, and more. This program is specifically designed to prepare and guide students and their families through the audition process.
In their senior year, students receive twenty private coaching sessions to fine-tune the monologues and songs they’ll present to college auditors. The CAP experience culminates in February of each year when seniors travel to Chicago Unified auditions to share their audition packages with various schools.
