We are thrilled to welcome Broadway star – ALLIE TRIMM for her first workshop with us. Allie is currently part of the Broadway cast of Wicked. Her other Broadway credits include Patrice in the original cast of 13: The Musical on Broadway and Kim MacAffe in the Broadway revival of Bye Bye Birdie. As one of the leading a child actors on Broadway, Allie will share her special insights on how a young performer can bring their own unique spin to their audition and performance material.
In the first part of this class, each student will get to work with Allie, our musical director (TBA) and Broadway Workshop director – MARC TUMMINELLI on their musical theater song selections. Our team will focus on helping students find a better connection to their songs as well as help with musicality and finding more confidence in their performances.
After a short lunch break, students will then perform their audition cut for a BROADWAY CASTING DIRECTOR – KEVIN METZGER-TIMSON of Tara Rubin Casting. Our guest casting director will share their thoughts on how to take our student’s performances to the next level and share their industry opinion on how to best stand out when auditioning for a casting team. Our Broadway casting director will end the workshop with a Q&A and take questions about the casting process, auditions and the common mistakes young performers can make in the room or during video auditions.
This workshop will inspire each student to work to their fullest potential and enjoy the process of auditioning and performing!
