The classes, which are scheduled to begin Jan. 23 and 24, 2006, will continue for five consecutive weeks. The course, according to press notes, will focus on "song interpretation and break-down, audition skills and performance, and the secrets to making it in show business."
Each class will be four hours in length with a maximum of 12 students per class. Broadway artists will make guest appearances to discuss their start in the business.
In a statement actress Howard said, "Shayna and I have six Broadway credits between the two of us, and our goal is to pass on the information that we've taken in over the past ten years to the actor/actress that is just getting started." Steele added, "We keep the class so small because we want everyone to have a chance to work on one to two songs per class."
Tuition for the course is $325. For more information call (212) 591-0900 or email THEAUDITIONCLASS@aol.com.
