Online MUSICAL THEATER Audition Master Class with Merri Sugarman, Casting Director, Tara Rubin Casting

Wednesday, June 16, 2021, 6:30pm ET / 3:30pm PT

This event is in the past.

From one of the busiest Broadway casting offices in NY, Actors Connection is thrilled to have Merri teaching this ONE NIGHT ONLY virtual Musical Theater Audition Master Class.

For this Master Class, please prepare your best song with music/track and have a list of other songs with tracks ready to go in case Merri wants to work with you on something else. 

This online intensive will start off with a Q & A, and then each actor will perform for Merri using your prepared material in a group format. She will coach, give direction and offer possible recommendations of material to "check out" if what you are currently using doesn't "work".

Please note that an accompanist will not be provided.  All actors will need to provide their own music/track for this intensive.

PLEASE NOTE: This class is limited to ADVANCED Musical Theater actors (18+).
