Tony winner Betty Buckley, who is set to reprise her role in Grey Gardens this summer for West Coast audiences at the Ahmanson Theatre, will return to Denver June 1-5 to teach her fifth annual Song Interpretation & Monologue workshop.
This master class for actors and singers is open to artists at all levels: high school students preparing for college auditions, current college students, professional actors and singers, educators and other professionals aspiring to refine their communication skills in word or song.
During her workshops, Olivier nominee Buckley, according to press notes, shares “her expertise, guiding her students through a methodology that facilitates audience connection through songs and monologues. Her emotional connection to songs and audiences is renowned, and that very connection is at the heart of what Ms. Buckley imparts to her students.”
The Denver Summer Intensive consists of five consecutive class sessions, June 1-5 from 1:30 PM-6:30 PM. Auditors are welcome to apply and observe the class at a reduced fee and will participate in the group exercises. Full participants will prepare two contrasting songs or monologues and will also do individual and group work under Buckley’s direction. An accompanist will be provided for singers.
