Acting Through Song

ACTING THROUGH SONG is an exciting eight-week course designed to help singing actors choose and polish two musical theatre audition pieces. With individual and group work, Sheridan and GSM Faculty Member Breanne Dietrich, will offer custom insight and suggestions to help each actor connect to their audition songs in meaningful ways so that each actor can feel their best.

Come prepared with one musical theatre song and have another contrasting song selected for you once Breanne gets to know your voice and style. Breanne will help you choose and cut your audition rep, and you’ll have the opportunity to work your pieces with your fellow actors. The course will end with a performance of your pieces in the Recital Hall for family and friends. The class will be accompanied by music director, Ben Wallace.

Wednesdays 7:00-9:00pm
Ages 12-17

April 3 to May 22, 2024 (8 sessions)
Cost: $300
