So you have a song to hone for auditions or a performance. Perhaps you want to polish the vocals in some of the trickier spots, or you need a little more direction with your acting choices. We can help you with that.
But what we really want to draw out of you is your "why" of the song: Why this song? Why this song for you? Why this song for you at this particular moment in time? What does this particular song have to say to an audience today? How is it ministering to your audience, whether that audience is a casting director or a room full of paying patrons?
If you can't answer that question, then we need to start there. We may even suggest a new song. Because at REGA, our answer to the above questions is never just "I like this song", or "it sounds good in my voice". Singing is too powerful for that. It *aways* has a purpose, whether or not you book the audition. You brought something into the room when you shared your God-given gift with the people in that room.
What do you want that something to be?
*Note: this class will require a self-tape audition
Registration to open soon!

Past Events and Classes
On September 16, 2022, REGA Arts produced its very first ever Showcasical!
What is a "showcasical"?
It's a showcase, but with a storyline. It's an original musical but with some students focusing on writing, some on acting, and others on singing. It's a collaboration between creatives of all stripes to put together an original production centered around a theme, in this case, how we find our value as human beings. Our writers were given a story outline and then sent off to write scenes for our acting students. Our acting students studied monologues for a couple of weeks, and then jumped into new material written for them. Our singers were given original songs based on the theme and storyline, written for them (in one case by them) to perform. And our special guest poet was given a topic to create a poem for the event.
The result was a glorious evening of original scenes, songs and poetry.
