We are thrilled to welcome the Broadway star of The Color Purple, Tony Award Winner – CYNTHIA ERIVO for her first master class with us!


CYNTHIA ERIVO is currently starring on Broadway as Celie in The Color Purple. Her performance in The Color Purple earned her the 2016 Best Actress in the Musical TONY Award. Her UK theatre credits include: Chenice in the West End musical I Can’t Sing! The X Factor Musical, at the London Palladium,  Celie in The Color Purple at Menier Chocolate factory, The Umbrellas of Cherbourg, Dessa Rose, I Was Looking at the Ceiling and Then I saw the Sky, Henry IV, A Midsummers Night’s Dream and as Deloris Van Cartier in the UK tour of Sister Act. Her TV Credits include: The Tunnel, Mr. Selfridge, and Chewing Gum. Most recently Cynthia starred as Cathy alongside Joshua Henry in a one-night benefit concert performance of Jason Robert Brown’s The Last Five Years at Town Hall. Cynthia is a graduate of London’s RADA.

Ms. Erivo will work with each student on audition technique and song interpretation in this special one day Master Class. We will focus on giving actors the opportunity to bring their audition and performance skills to the next level and how to better connect to their audition material. Students will break down their song material with one on one coaching in a class setting. Finally, students will have the opportunity to be part of a Q&A with Ms. Erivo and the Broadway Workshop team. This workshop will be musical directed by RANDY REDD.

Students will need 2 musical theatre audition songs in the correct key for this workshop. We will only be focusing on ONE 16/32 bar musical cut in this class. We ask that students have a second song to be used as back up. Music should be in a binder and clearly marked for our musical director. There is no dance component to this class.

THIS IS AN ADVANCED LEVEL CLASS. Students should be prepared for honest feedback and be ready to work in depth on their song selections. Students should have a high level of vocal training and have professional aspirations.

This class is limited to 16 Students.
