MUSICAL THEATER GYM
A class for actors and singers to work on songs and monologues in front of your peers, for auditions, cabaret, or performances.
Class fee = $30*
Audit fee = $10
First Timers = $20
Each actor can work on one or two selections, based on time. Minimum of four actors to hold class.
This platform is an opportunity to get a fresh look at old material or try out new work, as well as to augment your repertoire.
Feedback and adjustments are offered, as needed, in an effort to strengthen the performer’s overall acting choices, delivery, and confidence.
Musically, we address technical aspects on the material, key signature, and vocal dynamics, dramatic intention, ‘who you are talking to’ and ‘what do you want’, as well as the discovery of what’s new, or what changes; overall treating songs as monologues and dialogues.
Oftentimes, we suggest a musical genre to bring in that particular week, i.e.: Traditional Musical Theater, Character or comic song, Sondheim, etc…. It’s only suggestive. Whatever the actor needs to work on takes precedence.
Payments must be made prior to coming to class. At present, these online platforms are accepted: Venmo (@stevenpnyc), Zelle (firstname.lastname@example.org), PayPal (@stevenpnycMTG).
*After signing up, there is a $10 cancelation fee, if on the morning of class.
