Broadway Workshop is thrilled to bring back Broadway powerhouse and Tony Award Winner, RACHEL BAY JONES, for a one-day musical theater workshop!
Students will begin this workshop with a group warm up, then students will have the opportunity to sing a song of their choice for the Broadway star of Dear Evan Hansen, Hair, and Pippin, Tony Award Winner, RACHEL BAY JONES. Rachel will lead students in exercises to help bring their song material and audition/performance skills to the next level. In the final part of this workshop, students will be part of a Q&A where they will learn more about the process of working on Broadway and on TV. Rachel will be joined by Musical Director RANDY REDD who has appeared on Broadway in Million Dollar Quartet, Ring of Fire and Parade.
Students will need sheet music for one (1) musical theatre 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 three-hole punched and in a binder. Musical Director will be present to accompany students on the piano during the workshop. Students cannot sing a-capella or use recorded 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 15 students.
