ABOUT

How do you get to Broadway? Practice, practice, practice. For many professional theater artists, college is an important training ground… but everyone’s path to acceptance day is different. That is where our podcast begins. Join Charlie Murphy, actor & Director of Musical Theatre College Auditions (MTCA) as he chats with Broadway performers, college faculty members and industry pros about navigating the college audition process, earning a performing arts degree, and the role education plays in pursuing a career in the arts. Charlie will provide bonus tips and insights from 15+ years of helping theatre students conquer the college audition process.
