Goodspeed Musicals Song Coaching Workshop

Goodspeed’s Song Coaching Workbrent-with-textshop is a unique professional development opportunity for anyone who coaches musical theatre artists on the academic, amateur, or professional level. Professor Brent Wagner, Emeritus Chair of the University of Michigan Musical Theatre Department, will lead this workshop designed to help educators and artists improve their ability to coach actors at any level on the dramatic interpretation of a musical theatre song. Under Professor Wagner’s guidance, participants will coach singers individually, receiving feedback along with tools for analyzing the specific combination of music and lyrics to interpret the writers’ intent. Performance goals include physicality, musicianship, and acting skills, all of which are applicable to both coaching auditions and directing stage productions. Participants in the Song Coaching Workshop will also be offered a half-price ticket to Goodspeed’s production of Chasing Rainbows for the 8:00pm show on October 22. Don’t miss this rare opportunity to improve your ability as a musical theater song coach!
