Six days of classes (10 AM-6 PM) will comprise each of the two workshops, which feature professionals from every aspect of the business: choreographers, actors, fight directors, voice-over artists, casting directors, music directors, composers, agents and producers. Among those professionals scheduled to be part of the first winter session are Steve Koppel (Dec. 28), Julia Murney (Dec. 29), Jeff Blumenkrantz (Dec. 30) and Deborah Gibson (Dec. 31). The second winter session will boast David Kirshenbaum (Jan. 5, 2008), Benj Pasek and Justin Paul (Jan. 6), Matt Sklar (Jan. 8) and Lonny Price (Jan. 9).
Classes, focusing on individual and group instruction, will cover such topics as "acting, dance, improv, pop/rock, build your audition book, cold readings and business," according to a press statement. Each student will also have the chance to audition for the theatre professionals several times throughout the program.
Although the first session is sold out, there are some openings for the Jan. 4-9 session. For more information visit www.makingitonbroadway.com; to register for the session, go to the "shopping cart" section.
