The experience of mixed voice singing by females in contemporary musical theatre on Broadway

A doctoral research investigation sponsored by the University of Southern Queensland,

led by researcher Regina McAllen under the supervision of Dr Melissa Forbes and Dr Diane Hughes.

 

The purpose of this project is to understand how female singers in professional musical theatre produce and experience singing in their mix.

Our focus lies in investigating the sensations experienced by Broadway singers, their self-perceptions regarding their singing, and other influencing factors.

To qualify for this study, you should meet both of the following criteria:

1. Have one (or more) current or past Broadway credits. Roles may include ensemble, swing, understudy, lead, or standby.

2. Have performed in a minimum of three additional musicals where you have sung in your mix for at least a brief period. These may be tours (equity or non-equity), regional, college, or community theatre productions. Roles may include ensemble, swing, understudy, lead, or standby. 

All comments and responses are confidential unless required by law. Study findings will be published, ensuring your individual anonymity. Results will be featured in journal publications, the PhD student's dissertation, and conference presentations. Your data will not be shared for future or different research endeavors. In presenting the results, we may include partial sections of your data. Even though all participants' data will be kept anonymous, based on the content of your reflections, individuals who know you might be able to identify you.

Your participation will take approximately 15 minutes of your time.
