Led by three theatre professionals, we are delighted to offer a concentrated, rigorous and exciting theatre opportunity for area students to focus on style, technique and performance quality. We have developed a unique one-day crash-course program that concentrates on the development of the whole actor – the “triple threat.”
Two-time Tony Award nominee Robin de Jesus (In the Heights, La Cage aux Folles, Rent) will teach the song component of the program, emphasizing how to interpret a song, and how to find the perfect audition song, and will be accompanied by Liam Forde, a NYC based vocal and audition coach. Broadway Dancer/Choreographer Stephanie Klemons (Bring it On, In the Heights, Bombay Dreams, upcoming FLY) will teach the dance component of the program, focusing on dance styles often found in musical theatre, along with mock dance audition combinations, working step pick-up and technique. Actor Benjamin Simpson (Netflix’s upcoming House of Cards, BFA Musical Theatre - The Boston Conservatory, Emphasis in Acting, Musical Rep., and Directing) will teach the acting portion of the program, focusing on all aspects of creating a perfect monologue- from the scene study and educational beginning work, to coaching each student on his/her monologue for future auditions.
The intensive will conclude at the end of the day with a demonstration of the student’s work for family and friends!
