Broadway star and Tony Nominee ETHAN SLATER  will work with each student on audition technique and song interpretation in this special one day Musical Theatre Masterclass. We will focus on giving actors the opportunity to bring their audition and performance skills to the next level and how to better connect to their audition material. Students will break down their song material with one on one coaching in a class setting. Students will also have the opportunity to be part of a Q&A with Mr. Slater and the Broadway Workshop team.

In the final section of this workshop, students will also take part in a movement/dance workshop with a Broadway guest teacher (TBA).

Students will need 1-2 musical theatre or pop/rock audition songs 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 will be provided. Please bring clothes that you feel you can move in!

Class is limited to 16 students.
