Acting the Song

Classes are offered in Boston and Beverly.

NEW CLASS!  Trying to build your rep book? Struggling to find the right audition piece that you can connect to as both an actor and singer? In this class students will dive into the deeper side of musical theatre as they workshop songs by analyzing specific acting moments that will bring greater clarity to the young performer. Through various exercises and approaches, students will confidently emerge with solid pieces that can elevate their understanding in the performance of a musical theatre piece. Helming a musical theatre program with a focus on the high school student and their development as a performer, Chris comes to BCT with a wealth of knowledge to share, excite and inspire.
