Your journey within the music theatre industry is infinite.
We see so many talented people out there in the industry who are just waiting to catch a break. We’ve seen how those with degrees from certain schools are more likely to get in the room, and we spent a while looking in to the reasons this happens by interviewing people from all levels of the industry. One thing consistently came up: talent is not really that important, what IS important is the skills that lie in between.
Preparation, Communication, Wellbeing.
These three skills aren’t being taught outside of the schools (often not even within) and without these skills, it’s hard for casting agents to assess you from an application to audition, let alone to then successfully audition and hit rehearsals with a professional attitude, self-awareness, and self-confidence.
You can go many places to learn how to sing, dance, and act – we’re interested in developing the spaces in between.
Wellbeing for Performers
How to take care of your mental health through mindfulness, meditation, managing your emotions, emotional intelligence, and dealing with anxiety.
Developing your personal brand, how you represent and market yourself, communication techniques for casting, and showing professionalism while being true to you
Including audition prep, what's expected from you in rehearsal, and organising your life as a performer, and also how to show up to auditions and rehearsals with confidence
Why is it called Maybe This Time?
When creating this program we wanted to create a professional preparation course for people who had the skills they needed in performance, but were looking to take their professionalism to the next level. We believe that a deepening of these professional skills lies in how you present yourself and live your brand as a performer, and while watching an episode of Schitt's Creek, our program director saw an embodiment of what we are trying to achieve.
