In the Summer Intensive Program you will experience what it is like to stage a musical in 8 weeks with Peruvian and foreign artists. The musicals that we choose for the summer are revivals of our past adaptations (either from a past Summer Intensive Program or from our Performing Arts Programs).

In the summer of 2020 we performed, for the first time, the adaptation of the musical Beetlejuice at the Mocha Graña Theater in Barranco and, in 2022, we did the same with the musical In The Heights, now at the Quilla Theater in Barranco (our current location). This summer 2023 we will present, for the second time, our adaptation of the musical Beetlejuice. You can't miss it!

About the Musical

Beetlejuice is a musical with music and lyrics by Eddie Perfect and book by Scott Brown and Anthony King. Based on the 1988 movie of the same name, the story follows a deceased couple that wants to haunt the new inhabitants of their ancient home and asks for help using the nickname Beetlejuice (pronounced Betelgeuse). One of the new inhabitants is a girl, Lydia, who is dealing with the death of her mother.

Please note the following:

  1. Make sure you record yourself in a large space that allows you to move easily. Here are some tips. Each video should be no longer than 1 minute. You can send 2 different videos or put them all together in one file.
  2. Both the song and the monologue you choose must be in English. This is obligatory.
  3. You can choose any musical work, movie, series, song, etc. It has to be a topic that you like and feel comfortable with.
  4. If you need help finding the perfect monologue for you, you can review the following list that we prepared.

If you would like to send your audition without completing the Registration Form, we will still need to know you a little more in order to evaluate you. Therefore, in addition to your video, we ask that you also indicate your name, age, level of English proficiency, and amount of acting experience in the message you send us.
