Master Class with Broadway’s Emily Skinner

No Comments 30 August 2014


Monday, December 1st, 6-9pm
Cost: $110 / Ages: 13-18


Emily-Skinner-42nd-Street-Moon-stark-insiderTony-Award nominee and guest star of Virginia Repertory Theatre’s upcoming MAME, Emily Skinner has unequivocally established herself as one of Broadway’s most engaging and versatile performers. With a focus on both acting and musicality, she teaches the technique of turning an audition song into a fully explored scene/performance with humor and humanity. She believes that what you choose to sing tells people who you are, and is expert at suggesting the best kind of material to showcase each student and make them shine.


Recently, audiences enjoyed Emily in the starring role of Adelaide in the world premiere of THE GREAT AMERICAN MUSICAL at Goodspeeds’ Norma Terris Theatre, under the direction of Dame Julie Andrews. She also recently created the role of Monique McCandless in Stephen King/John Mellencamp’s new musical THE GHOST BROTHERS OF DARKLAND COUNTY at the Alliance Theatre and on a multi-city rock ‘n roll concert tour. She last appeared on Broadway starring in the acclaimed musical BILLY ELLIOT.

Handpicked by Oscar-winning director Stephen Daldry, she had the honor of being the very first American selected to play the role on Billy’s dance teacher, Mrs. Wilkinson. Emily was nominated for a Tony Award and received a Drama League Award for her performance as Daisy Hilton in the brilliant but short-lived SIDE SHOW. Her other original Broadway cradits include JEKYLL AND HYDE, JAMES JOYCE’S THE DEAD, (opposite Christopher Walken), THE FULL MONTY, DINNER AT EIGHT (outer Critics Circle Nomination), as well as the Actor’s Fund productions of THE BEST LITTLE WHOREHOUSE IN TEXAS and DREAMGIRLS.


Cost: $60 per class / $120 for both / Ages 13-18
