UPDATE: We’ve lowered the participation age to 7 so everyone who’s participating in our summer musical can also take this “triple threat” workshop in dancing, singing, and acting with a Broadway touring performer!
On SATURDAY, JUNE 3, NBYT will host a BROADWAY CONNECTION MASTER CLASS in “Triple Threat Technique” for ages 7 and up from 9 AM to 12 noon with a performer from the Broadway touring production of THE KING AND I who will come to NBYT.
Broadway Connection provides students the opportunity to work in a positive, familiar, and intimate environment with current Broadway performers. The Master Class includes a warm-up and technique work in acting, singing and dancing, and finishes with a Q & A session in which participants are encouraged to ask about education, auditions, working on Broadway, traveling with productions, and the excitement of performing every night!
The three-hour Master Class costs only $40 and will be limited to twenty-five students. Parents may join for the Q&A and to take photos. To register, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 860-515-8115. Payment should be made at the time of registration, and may be delivered, mailed, or made online.
THE KING AND I is the Tony Award-winning Best Musical Revival of 2015 that the New York Times described as “breathtaking and exquisite.” One of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s finest works, The King and I boasts a score that features such classics as “Getting To Know You,” “I Whistle a Happy Tune,” “Hello Young Lovers,” “Shall We Dance” and “Something Wonderful.” Set in Bangkok in the 1860s, the musical tells the story of the unconventional relationship that develops between the King of Siam and a British schoolteacher whom the King brings to Siam to tutor his wives and children.
The Broadway touring company of The KING AND I is playing at The Bushnell on May 30 through June 4.
