Musical Theatre Competition Teams are admitted by audition only. The classes are designed to prepare selected individuals who wish to join the studio at the 2024 MTCA (Musical Theatre Competition of America) in Anaheim February 9-11th 2024. The weekend consists of Group Performance Workshop/Adjudication, Solo/duet workshop/adjudication, a full day of specialized classes and training, and a final day at Knotts Berry Farm including an awards ceremony.

WHAT'S EXPECTED

Students in our Advanced and Elite teams may be requested to perform in our Select Team. Each team will perform a group number at the Musical Theatre Competitions of America in February 2024. Each student in our Advanced and Elite Teams will be asked to enter into at least one additional category (ie: a solo, duet, design, or monologue category). These levels will be determined by the director. Our Advanced and Elite teams will also be required to compete in at least one additional competition event. 

In addition to our Competition/Convention weekends, students on the team will be required to perform in our Annual Year End Showcase in June. 

We also often get asked to perform at outside events. For example, the Simi Valley Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony. Only those students who are opting to learn our Christmas Material for that season will be given the opportunity to perform at these types of events. These types of requests are optional but also are a ton of fun and we encourage everyone to make a great effort to attend these. November-December is when we get the most requests.

ATTENDANCE: Competition Team members are expected to attend all scheduled weekly classes for the entire season (August 2023-June 2024) and Festival/Competition activities the weekend of the Competition as well as the studio events listed above. We will allow up to 3 excused absences per semester (Aug-Dec and Jan-June) with reasonable notice. This allows students to participate in productions outside the studio. There will be no conflicts allowed on the 2 weeks leading up to the Festival/Competition weekend!

Competition Team members at all levels are required to have regular good attendance in our Classes/programs. There is a minimum of 1 additional approved class/program for our Select Teams and a minimum of 2 additional approved classes for our Advanced and Elite Teams. Class suggestions will be given to each team member.  

We understand that those who participate in our Musical Theatre Competition Teams are extremely talented and, therefore, have a great chance at being cast in an outside Musical that may conflict with Competition Team. Treat acceptance into the Team as if you are cast in a Musical Production/Company! When auditioning for outside productions, students are expected to place our weekly Competition Team class as a conflict for outside rehearsals. 

**TIP: You are allowed 3 absences per semester. If you wish to participate in an outside show, you may do so as long as you include Team rehearsals as your conflict for an outside production and use your excused absences for your outside tech-week and shows. No conflicts are allowed the 2 weeks leading up to Festival/Competition weekend.**
