We are thrilled to welcome Broadway star of Hamilton and In the Heights – MANDY GONZALEZ and Hamilton’s THAYNE JASPERSON for a special Musical Theatre Master Class for students ages 12-19!

Mandy Gonzalez is currently starring in the hit Broadway musical Hamilton in the role of Angelica Schuyler. She is best known for her  portrayal of Nina Rosario in the Tony Award winning, Lin-Manuel Miranda Broadway musical  In the Heights, which she received a Drama Desk Award for Best Ensemble. She starred as Elphaba in the Broadway production of Wicked. Other Broadway roles include Princess Amneris in the Elton John and Tim Rice musical Aida and the Broadway show  Lennon where she portrayed multiple roles including that of Beatles’ icon John Lennon. Mandy made her Broadway debut in Jim Steinman’s  Dance of the Vampires  starring opposite Michael Crawford.

Ms. Gonzalez 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. Students will also have the opportunity to be part of a Q&A with Ms. Gonzalez and the Broadway Workshop team.

In the final section of this workshop students will take part in a HAMILTON themed dance/movement class led by THAYNE JASPERSON who has also appeared on Broadway in Newsies and Matilda and can currently been seen in Broadway’s Hamilton!

Students will need 1 musical theatre or pop/rock audition song in the correct key for this workshop. We will only be focusing on ONE 16/32 bar musical cut in this class. If possible please have a second song to be used as back up. Songs should be 3- hole punched and in a binder. Accompanist will be provided. Students will not need a photo/resume for this class.

Class is limited to 16 students.
