The Princeton Festival Offers Two New Free Performing Arts Workshops for High School and College Students

(PRINCETON, NJ) -- Registration is now open for The Princeton Festival’s  new interactive workshops on opera and musical theater. Sponsored by The Princeton Festival Guild, these free programs pull back the curtain to provide unique insight on the behind-the-scenes process in an intimate setting. Space is limited, so early registration is encouraged.

The Making of a Musical is a three-part pre-professional training workshop for high school and college singers aspiring to perform in musicals. It is limited to 25 students.

In the first session on Saturday, May 19, professional singer and educator Gail Blache-Gill will cover proper vocal techniques and discuss approaches to career advancement. Topics include industry insights on how to prepare for an audition, professional conduct, and the business of being in the business.

Session 2 consists of a visit to a technical rehearsal of the Festival’s production of A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum on Sunday, June 3. Students will see how the elements of the musical are put together. Director Michael Dean Morgan will guide them through aspects of the production, and have them meet the cast for a Q&A session.

In session 3 on Saturday, June 9, students will be admitted to the final dress rehearsal of the musical to see the final product: a full performance of Forum. More information and online registration is available online.
