The August Master Class consists of four to five sessions, running Aug. 5-9 from 6:30 PM-11 PM. An accompanist will be provided for singers.

In her classes, the award-winning singing actress "shares her expertise and guides her students through a methodology that facilitates audience connection through songs and monologues," according to press notes. "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."

Attendees will work to "perfect their ability to effectively communicate in their performance, their work and their relationships." The class also welcomes auditors who participate in all aspects of the class except the individual coaching by Buckley.

Betty Buckley offered acclaimed performances in Broadway's Sunset Boulevard, Carrie, Song & Dance, The Mystery of Edwin Drood, 1776, Triumph of Love and Promises, Promises. She won a Tony Award for her performance as Grizabella in the Broadway production of Cats, and she starred on the London stage in Promises, Promises and Sunset Boulevard, earning an Olivier Award nomination for her work in the latter. Her screen credits are numerous.
