In the Spring Quarter of every other year the Louisiana Tech School of the Performing Arts presents a musical. This collaborative event provides students with the opportunity to participate in the rehearsal and performance of a large stage production. The purpose of this group effort is to teach students the specific skills involved in every aspect of a stage production.
Auditions are held in the Winter Quarter and are open to all students and community members. One hour of course credit is available (MUEN 261, MUEN 461).
- Dance Auditions: Auditionees need to dress appropriately for movement, and will be taught a routine by the choreographer during the audition.
