Broadway Workshop is thrilled to bring you this very special one day workshop experience! Join us for the first ever MEAN GIRLS WORKSHOP DAY with ERIKA HENNINGSEN and BEN COOK.
This workshop is sold out. Please join the waiting list for updates!
Students will begin this workshop by having a group warm up, followed by a dance/movement workshop with BEN COOK from the Broadway company of Mean Girls. Ben will lead the students in a movement combination directly from Mean Girls on Broadway. Then students will have the opportunity to sing a song of their choice for the star of Mean Girls on Broadway – ERIKA HENNINGSEN (Cady Heron). Erika will lead students in exercises to help bring their song material and audition/performance skills to the next level.
The workshop will conclude with a Q&A where students will learn more about the process of creating and performing in Mean Girls on Broadway!
Students will need sheet music for 1 musical theater or pop/rock song in the correct key for this workshop. We will only be focusing on ONE 16/32 bar musical cut in this class. If possible please have a second song to be used as back up. Songs should be 3- hole punched and in a binder. Accompanist/Musical Director will be provided. Students can not sing a-capella and use recored tracks for this class. Students can sing anything that brings them joy and that they feel comfortable singing! Students will not need a photo/resume for this class.
Class is limited to 16 students.
