Advanced & By Audition Only Online Summer Intensives

A Class Act NY’s Advanced and By Audition Only Online Musical Theatre Summer Intensives are for a select group of artists who are ready for the challenge of honing their singing, dancing, & acting skills through exploring more advanced work. Instructors are Broadway Stars, Professional Music Directors, Broadway Casting Directors, Agents and Managers.

The advanced online Pre-Professional Program (ages 12-19) and the online Junior Conservatory Program (ages 7-11) culminate in an online final showcase for ten scouting talent agents and managers, and loved ones.

Brief Plot Summary: Loretta Vern is celebrating her 14th birthday at her favorite escape room, “Trapped” on the Mort Weber Highway. She comes with three of her closest friends. She’s been a hundred times. She’s actually a record holder for the room, her picture is on the wall. She has escaped in one minute and thirty five seconds. They greet her with a big smile. They enter the escape room, but something is off. The usual book that is removable that hides the skeleton key is gone. The usual emcee is out and someone else is hosting. Suddenly, they realize they are trapped, and they need to actually escape.

As they make their way through this actual disaster, they face a variety of issues as they are scared completely out of their wits. They realize that the escape room has been taken over by actual villains and the only way out is to outsmart and defeat the villains. The phones lines are dead, cell service is down, doors are locked. How will they get out? Will Loretta ever get her birthday cake?

Staged Performance: The week will culminate in the WORLD PREMIERE of ESCAPE! for an audience filled with family, friends, and industry guests!

We will spend 3 hours and 30 minutes together daily as a group in our online advanced intensive led by our Broadway Director. Included in the program are 2 forty-five minute lessons with the main Broadway Director and Music Director and 1 fifteen-minute dance brush up lesson with a Choreographer. Moreover, throughout the week, special visiting guest artists such as Broadway Stars and Broadway Casting Directors zoom in to teach accelerated, educational masterclasses.

This exclusive program culminates in a Final Zoom Showcase for 10 Scouting Talent Agents & Managers! Many of our past participants have been discovered at this very program. For a list of recent student achievements, click here.

Exciting Zoom features like break-out rooms make it possible for actors to work opposite one another in a small classroom setting. Since early March, Zoom has provided our advanced students with an amazing way to connect with in-demand industry pros, and with one another.

NEW FOR 2020:
We are adding exciting, new elements into the Pre-Professional Program. The intensive now includes a workshop with a Broadway Casting Director, More Scouting Talent Reps at the Final Showcase, Extended Private Lessons, and the incorporation of Monologues into our Final Showcase.

Private Lessons
During the week, participants will receive 3 free private lessons. Prep your final showcase material with the guidance of your Broadway Director, Music Director and Dance Instructor. Lessons will take place outside of normal camp hours.

Voice: 45 Minutes with your Broadway Director and a Professional Music Director. We’ll work on your song cut for the final showcase. This lesson will focus on proper audition and vocal technique.

Acting: 45 Minutes with your Broadway Director. We’ll work on your monologue for the final showcase. We’ll break down your monologue beat by beat, discover operative words within the text, and identify your conflict and your objective.

Dance: 15 Minutes with a Professional Choreographer. While dance won’t be part of Friday’s showcase, it’s important all well rounded musical theatre performers strengthen their dance skills. Learn how to break down difficult dance steps and make a lasting impression in a dance audition.

Advanced Masterclasses with Visiting Broadway Stars & Broadway Casting Directors
Pre-Professional Program participants will also take a series of advanced masterclasses with visiting Broadway Stars and Broadway Casting Directors designed to challenge and elevate our actors' skill set. Masterclasses include: Scene Study, Character Development, & Script Analysis, Acting Through Song, Dialect Coaching & Vocal Technique and Audition Technique with a Broadway Casting Director.
