[May 16, 2008]  Broadway-bound acting students and students who enjoy playing in a jazz band can work on their craft at the third annual Lincoln College musical theater summer workshop in early June. Registration forms are now being accepted and will continue until June 15 or until all spots are filled.

The musical theater workshop, along with a jazz band camp, will be offered on the Lincoln College campus June 15-22. The workshop will cover vocal and acting exercises to help young performers with auditioning tips, improvisational skills and character technique. Master classes will also be included in the curriculum. The weeklong residential camp will culminate in a musical theater performance review. Professional singers, choreographers, actors and directors from all over the Midwest will share their skills during breakout sessions.

Lincoln College Theatre Division Chair Chris Gray hopes to bring in student performers with varied backgrounds from music, theater and dance. "Musical theater requires such a diverse set of skills," he said. "We hope to help round out performers and give them new techniques in all areas of musical theatre." Gray said past participants of the program were satisfied with the various course offerings and he hopes to continue helping the young actors who yearn to learn more. "We are looking for young actors, singers and dancers who are passionate, focused and dedicated to the art of musical theater," he said. "It's for all levels of performers."

LC music instructor Scott Woger will supervise the jazz band curriculum.
