Ali Stroker Online Workshop – SOLD OUT
Thursday, November 19, 2020
5:00pm – 6:30pm ET (Eastern Time)
Zoom Online Intensive
ALI STROKER 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 Ms. Stroker 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.
Class is limited to 8 students.
Ali Stroker made history as the first actress in a wheelchair to appear on Broadway when she originated the role of ‘Anna’ in Deaf West’s acclaimed 2015 revival of Spring Awakening. In 2019, Stroker received a Tony Award for Best Performance by an Actress in a Featured Role for her captivating performance as ‘Ado Annie’ in the revival of “Oklahoma!” After graduating from Tisch, Stroker starred on 12 episodes of the talent competition, The Glee Project. She placed second and won a guest role on Fox’s Glee. She then recurred in the Kyra Sedgwick ABC series, Ten Days in the Valley and guest starred on Fox’s Lethal Weapon and CBS’ Instinct. Stroker earned a Barrymore Award nomination for starring as Olive Ostrovsky in The Twenty-Fifth Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee. In addition to her work on and off-Broadway, she’s soloed at the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC, New York’s Town Hall, and Lincoln Center for Performing Arts and Carnegie Hall. She’s also the first actress in a wheelchair to graduate from the NYU Tisch drama program.
