MUSICAL THEATRE AUDITION WORKSHOP
This Musical Theatre Audition Workshop doubles as a Master Class with talented actress and vocalist (plus all-around awesome person) Whitney Claire Kaufman!
Whitney graduated with honors from Chapman University in Orange, CA with a BFA in Theater Performance before completing two years with the North American Tour of the Broadway smash-hit Mamma Mia! (Ensemble, Understudy for Sophie and Lisa). Her performance as Sophie garnered rave reviews from the Boston Globe. Whitney has performed as guest soloist with the Malaysian Philharmonic in Kuala Lumpur, the Calgary Philharmonic, the Atlanta Symphony, the Blossom Festival Orchestra, the Florida Orchestra, the Dallas Symphony, the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra in Australia, the National Symphony at the Kennedy Center, and many other renowned symphony orchestras. She has appeared in The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee (Olive Ostrovsky), Cabaret (Sally Bowles), A Midsummer Night’s Dream (Peaseblossom), Marisol (June), The Los Angeles Theatre Ensembles’ production of Wounded, as well as many other theatrical productions. TV credits include General Hospital and the hit ABC series Modern Family. As both a singer and voice-over performer in film and television, Whitney has been heard in productions including That Championship Season, The Secret of NiMH 2, and two MGM animated series: All Dogs Go to Heaven and Noddy. She can be heard on the recent recordings of songs written by Oscar-winning composer Dimitri Tiomkin and frequently tours with Disney in Concert as a solo vocalist.
This two hour workshop is designed to help polish your audition material and empower you to feel capable and confident in a musical theatre audition. It will start out with a Q+A, where participants can ask Whitney about audition protocol and preparation, as well as any questions they may have about day-to-day life as a working actor and performer. This will be followed by an opportunity for all participants to get on their feet and work through 16-32 bars of two contrasting songs, with valuable constructive feedback.
