I am pleased to announce that I will be attending the prestigious Musical Theatre Intensive at Stella Adler Studio of Acting in NYC this summer. The program will be a thorough immersion into the variety of disciplines that converge to become acting for the musical theatre. Our first Master Teacher will be Pulitzer and Tony Award winning composer Tom Kitt.
STATEMENT of PURPOSE
The Musical Theatre Intensive provides comprehensive musical theatre training rooted in the core beliefs of the Stella Adler Studio, strengthening & sharpening the actor’s skills in musical theatre while deepening and evolving the actor’s understanding of dramatic acting in the musical theatre form.
The Adler technique combines valuing the human experience with a sense of mission in performance: nowhere is this more essential than the pivotal moment when a scene becomes a song. Using the Adler process as its foundation, the Musical Theatre Intensive integrates voice and speech training, movement for the actor, and an understanding of classic text with analysis of the musical theatre form, an ability to audition effectively through both words and music, and musical theatre performance & interpretation.
