2:00 to 5:30 PM
On Saturday, April 27, 2019, Broadway star Christy Altomare is leading a masterclass workshop with middle and high school students to help improve their audition technique.
CHRISTY ALTOMARE just completed starring as ‘Anya’ in Anastasia on Broadway. She graduated from the University of Cincinnati’s Conservatory of Music in 2008 and soon after was cast as Wendla in the National Tour of Spring Awakening. Altomare made her off-Broadway debut in MCC Theater’s 2012 revival of Carrie, portraying ‘Sue Snell’ in the cult Stephen King thriller. A Broadway debut quickly followed as she joined the cast of the long-running hit musical Mamma Mia!, assuming the role of Sophie Sheridan in June 2012. Her big breakthrough came as she was cast to play the title role in the stage adaptation of Anastasia, based on the much-loved 1997 animated film by Twentieth Century Fox. She received her first Drama Desk Award nomination and won a Theatre World Award for her portrayal of the legendary ‘Grand Duchess’ of Russia.
Over the course of three and a half hours, Christy will work with each student on audition technique and song interpretation in this special one-day Master Class. She will focus on giving students the opportunity to bring their audition and performance skills to the next level. Students will break down their song material with one on one coaching in a fun filled class setting. Students will also have the opportunity to be part of a Q&A with Christy about her experience working on Broadway shows.
Students will need sheet music for 1 or 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. Students can sing anything that brings them joy and that they feel comfortable singing!
The workshop will run from 2:00 PM to 5:30 PM at the Playhouse at Allenberry, located on the Allenberry Resort at 1559 Boiling Springs Road, Boiling Springs, PA 17007.
Cost for the Masterclass Workshop (limited to 18 participants ONLY) is $165. In addition to a great opportunity, it will be an excellent addition to any resume. Observer tickets are also available for family, friends, area students, or anyone interested in sitting in the audience and watching the class and Christy work! Observer tickets are $20 for adults and $15 for students.
