Online Contemporary Musical Theatre Rep Class: Song and Audition Material for New Musicals w/ Rance Wright and Joe Barros (New York Director)
April 6, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm$33
The Wright Way introduces workshops as a valuable tool to enhance your learning experience. The Wright Way believes that workshops assist in elevating one’s performance, auditions and technique.
At times like this we must turn to each other to find ways to keep sharp on our auditions technique. So The Wright Way has created this online Contemporary Musical Theatre Repertoire Class to help you stay connected and informed. Rance Wright (Performance and Auditions Coach) will be teaming up with Joe Barros (Broadway Director: Gigi with Vanessa Hudgens and Victoria Clark and Off-Broadway: The Evolution of Mann, Cagney, Bastard Jones, etc.) for this particular class. We are excited to work with you and hope that this continues to be a format we can use in the future.
Individuals interested in this class will be required to prepare 1 – one minute to minute and a half contemporary Song or Monologue, fully memorized. Each student will be given the chance to perform in a safe space and will be given notes and then able to present material again.
Please let The Wright Way know if you have any questions about this class by emailing us at [email protected]
