Please prepare a Musical Theatre type song- 1-2 minutes long (a verse and a chorus). You will need a karaoke track to sing along to. Please make sure the recorded vocals are not on the track.
Here are some Musical Theatre song suggestions:
First Time in Forever from Frozen
When Will My Life Begin from Tangled
In Summer from Frozen
You’re Never Fully Dressed fromAnnie
Part of Your World from The Little Mermaid
How Far I’ll Go from Moana
Under the Sea from The Little Mermaid
I Won’t Grow Up from Peter Pan
Be Our Guest from Beauty and the Beast
When I Grow Up from Matilda
For grades 2nd - 5th, please also prepare these lines from “Oh, the
thinks you can think!” by Dr. Seuss:
You can think up some birds.
That’s what you can do.
You can think about yellow
Or think about blue....
Think left and think right
And think low and think high.
Oh, the thinks you can think up if only you try!
- Slate - At the beginning of your recording, say your name and what song you will be singing
Sing - sing your song with your karaoke track
Acting - deliver the short Dr. Seuss poem with your own twist and character choice
Here are examples of incorrect framing and lighting for your self tape:
Framing is slightly above head to the waist
Light is on the face and not backlit
Face is not obstructed by hair or hat
Eyes are visible and bright
And of course, you’re never fully dressed without a smile!
