Alex Brightman Online Workshop
Sunday, November 1st, 2020
1:00pm – 3:00pm ET (Eastern Time)
Alex will work with each student on audition technique and song interpretation in this special online master class. 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 also take part in a Q&A with Mr. Brightman and the Broadway Workshop team.
Each student should prepare one musical theatre song of their choice for this workshop and have an accompaniment track in the correct key. This is an online workshop through Zoom.
THIS IS AN ADVANCED LEVEL CLASS. Students should be prepared for honest feedback and be ready to work in depth on their song selections. Students should have a high level of vocal training and have professional aspirations.
Class is limited to 9 students.
Alex Brightman most recently starred as the title role in Broadway’s Beetlejuice where he received his second Tony Award nomination. Before Beetlejuice, Brightman received his first Tony Nomination as Dewey in School of Rock. Other Broadway credits include: Matilda, Big Fish, Wicked, and Glory Days. Along with being a performer, Alex is also an accomplished writer and is currently working with Drew Gasparini on a musical adaptations of the film It’s Kind of a Funny Story as well as the award-winning children’s book The Whipping Boy.
