Each summer, students travel from across the United States and around the world to the Oklahoma City University campus to participate in our renowned Summer Music Programs. Our intensive pre-college programs are designed for serious students who want to develop their talents and be challenged by OCU’s rigorous training.
WHAT TO EXPECT - Real classes taught by real faculty!
Our programs are chiefly directed and instructed by faculty from OCU's outstanding Bass School of Music and TheatreOCU. Participants receive the training that produced Broadway stars Kristin Chenoweth, Kelli O’Hara, and many more up and coming stars!
Included in our rigorous pre-college training:
•Private voice training
•Private and group coaching to work on appropriate audition repertoire
•Masterclasses with the OCU faculty and guests
•Acting and monologue classes
•Dance classes and mock dance auditions
•Mock auditions to give you real-life college audition experience
In our Musical Theater Production and Ultimate Summer Experience you will get a real sense of what it means to be a college musical theater major. Your time on campus will be like getting a "mini" degree. It's that intense and rigorous!
It may be different from what you've ever experienced in musical theatre... will you still love it when the reality of long days, hard work, or the disappointment of not getting cast as the lead sets in? If so, GREAT! If not... GREAT! You just saved a lot of time and money auditioning for a career path you're not going to love.
By sharing this time with other driven and talented students from all across the country, you will make lifelong friendships. You will learn and grow alongside friends you will continue to see for years to come at auditions, on cruise ships, in touring companies, and on Broadway stages!
There will also be some fun thrown in! Our counselors - OCU music theatre majors specially chosen to be ambassadors and mentors - take the lead in evening and weekend activities designed to make your camp experience memorable and fun.
•Live casting auditions
