This upbeat advanced master class focuses on building a well-rounded audition book with the fundamentals begun in the Bootcamp, exploring new repertoire and polishing existing material for each performer. There is a strong emphasis on finding material that supports clear casting choices for type, age, personality and voice.
From his experience as a professional casting director and from eight years of his Musical Theatre Forum casting workshop, which has included every Broadway casting office, VP has distinguished six song categories imperative to success: standard ballad, standard uptempo, contemporary ballad, contemporary driving/dramatic, comedy, and pop/rock. This master class also explores additional categories based on the skill set of each individual performer, including: 30s/40s, contemporary composers, Sondheim, patter, cabaret, country, and more.
Each participant will work approximately 30 minutes every day in a small and supportive classroom setting. Discussions include "red flag" songs, which should be used strategically or with caution, common expectations and suggestions of casting directors, and the best/standard cuts for auditions at the Broadway level. This is a very "results oriented" class that will challenge you as an actor and singer and take your work to the next level. Best part: you'll have fun while doing it!GET UNSTUCK! SHAKE-IT-UP SEMINAR
