Bundy, who began her career at a young age in the Off-Broadway musical Ruthless!, will offer insight from her career as a child actor and her transition to a young Broadway leading lady. Bundy will lead participants through song interpretation, vocal coaching, scene study, dance combinations and musical theatre audition technique.

A portion of the $150 Broadway Workshop registration fee will go directly to Bundy's charity Kreative Kids Foundation. Bundy's non-profit organization supports underprivileged children through education, encouragement, guidance and support in the creative and performing arts. The support comes in the form of scholarship and educational programming for Child Services, children's hospitals, orphanages, foster home facilities, museums, theatres and other non-profit arts organizations.

In addition to her Tony nominated work as the pink-clad Elle Woods in the musical adaptation of Legally Blonde, Bundy originated the role of Amber von Tussle in the Broadway cast of the Tony-winning musical Hairspray, and stoodby for Kristin Chenoweth as Glinda in the Broadway production of Wicked. Her other theatrical credits include Gypsy, Damn Yankees, Grease!, Pajama Game and The Sound of Music. On screen Bundy has been seen in "Dreamgirls," "Guiding Light," "Jumanji," "Life with Mikey," "Adventures of Huck Finn," "Home Improvement" and "Strangers with Candy."

The Broadway Workshop is open to students 9-14. The one-day master class will be held at Ripley Grier Studios from 10 AM–2 PM. The master class is selling quickly, but a waiting list will be in effect.

Among the artists who have previously taken part in the Broadway Workshop are Leslie Kritzer (Catered Affair, Legally Blonde), Jessica Bogart (Oklahoma, A Funny Thing Happened…), Kaitlin Hopkins (How the Grinch Stole Christmas, Noises Off), James Donegan (Forbidden Broadway) and Stephanie Johnston.
