Musical Theatre:
Over the past few years, we discovered many musical theatre programs no longer attend auditions like ours, preferring video submissions or to audition potential students on-site at their program locations. While COCA will not be hosting the Musical Theatre portion of the auditions, we encourage you to submit online audition videos to further your summer training.

Dance Applicants:

Sign in/Registration begins 1 hour prior to audition start time.
