From a young age, studying musical theatre has been a passion of mine. As a result, I have developed an extensive repertoire that ranges from the golden age, all the way to pop/rock & contemporary musical theatre.
I began helping friends in the industry to pick songs for their auditions. It quickly became apparent that there was a need for a service like this.
And Prep Your Rep was born.
Today, we offer a wider range of services that include our best-selling Motivational Morning, Self-Tape Challenges, 1:1 Sessions with any of our four mentors and more. We're so excited to continue our journey and we'd love for you to be a part of it.
Since 2019, our team of mentors has been growing and we're so grateful to have such experienced, talented professionals as part of our team. We also have two incredible patrons who provide so much support.
