Tony Award winner Betty Buckley, who scored rave reviews for her performance in the recent Off-Broadway production of Horton Foote's The Old Friends, will offer master classes in Manhattan and Denver.
Buckley will return to New York in May to offer her Song Interpretation & Monologue Master Class at T. Schreiber Studio. The five sessions will be presented May 2-7.
Buckley, according to a press release, will share "her expertise and guide 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."
An accompanist will be provided for singers. For further details and to apply to the workshop, prospective participants should contact T. Schreiber Studio at (212) 741-0209 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information visit www.tschreiber.org.

The workshop is a master class for actors and singers of all levels: high school students, college students, professionals, educators and anyone aspiring to refine their communication skills in word or song.
Auditors are welcome to observe the class at a reduced fee and will participate in the group exercises. Full participants prepare two contrasting songs or monologues and will also do individual work under Buckley’s direction. An accompanist will be provided for singers.
