We often hear the statement, “Oh, I didn’t know you had a class starting in January!”  Then the next question usually is, “What are the benefits of attending a class that starts in January?” 

Well, here is your Top 10 list of reasons to come to the Randolph Academy for the Performing Arts in January:

  1. Smaller class size – because fewer people choose January as a start time, the class is usually smaller
  2. More individual attention – because of fewer people in the class, you get more attention!
  3. Because of the class size you really get to know your classmates even better, therefore the trust level is higher
  4. The class is usually quite eclectic, well-travelled, some have already obtained degrees and bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to the class
  5. The class moves along at a fast pace, therefore you are introduced to concepts earlier
  6. Its easier to find housing in January
  7. More time to prepare yourself after high school (mentally, physically, psychologically etc)
  8. More time to work and raise funds
  9. You will graduate in time to audition for summer stock theatre
  10. Freshly graduated (in December), you will be already prepared for the Theatre Ontario Showcase (in January of each year, where recent graduates get to strut their stuff in front of industry professionals)

We are currently accepting applications for January 2013.  The deadline to apply for January 2013 entrance is Monday, September 10, 2012.

We will be holding one last group audition on Friday, September 28 beginning at 4:00 pm.  You may also audition by DVD (submissions accepted until September 28). If you cannot make the September 28 audition, please feel free to schedule a private audition. 

Fill out an application here.

Review the Audition Requirements:

Prepare one memorized one-minute, age- and gender-appropriate monologue from a published contemporary play (1960-present). Please read the complete play; the audition panel will ask you questions about it.

Prepare one memorized song, up-tempo or ballad, from Musical Theatre/Broadway repertoire (age- and gender-appropriate), maximum 2 minutes in length. Please bring sheet music in the key in which you will be singing.  Music must be copied double-sided in a 3-ring binder that is 1'' thick. An accompanist will be provided.

Wear proper attire for jazz dance. A dance assessment will be conducted at beginner level. If accepted, further assessment will be conducted to determine dance class placement (pre-beginner, beginner, elementary, intermediate, or advanced).
