Broadway Masterclass Series
In these masterclasses, Broadway actors will give students dance or voice instruction. Followed by a Q&A, these master classes will answer questions about what it's like to be in one of Broadway's biggest blockbusters, as well as what it takes to have a career in show business!
Join us for an intimate masterclass and Q&A with Christy Altomare, Broadway’s original Anastasia.
This Masterclass is for singers who want to perfect their audition songs. Great for those students preparing for college or other professional auditions. Christy will work with each singer on their song and then will answer questions about the industry.
Participants must have a 16 - 32 bar cut of a song prepared and must bring their own sheet music. An accompanist will be provided. If you do not have a song prepared, you can register as an observer.
Observers will get to watch the students and Ms. Altomare work together, picking up tips for their own singing. They will also get to participate in the Q&A at the end of the class, ask Ms. Altomare questions about her experience debuting a Broadway role and will snag some photos with her!
Space is limited!
