Summer Musical Theatre Intensive
Summer 2021: June 1 - July 1
What do you want to be doing this summer?
Focus on your passion for five weeks this summer with The Fordham Summer Musical Theatre Intensive.
The current health crisis has forced performing artists to reinvent themselves and apply their skills in new formats. Our Musical Theatre faculty are no different, and we are thrilled to be able to offer a re-envisioned fully online program option for this summer. Work one-on-one and in small groups to hone your skills in song, spoken dialog, and dance. See how much you can grow as an artist this summer!
Who do you want to meet?
Professional contacts. Our teachers have years of professional experience. Knowing both the business and artistic faces of acting, they share ways to break down habits and create new entrances into character. Described as "outstanding" with an "amazing amount of knowledge to share," the instructors provide new tools for you to use on your professional journey. Past luminaries have included Mana Allen (Core Faculty Cap21), Kenneth Marks (Uncle Ben in Spiderman), Bartlett Sher (Lincoln Center Resident Director, and director of Metropolitan Opera's Two Boys); Chandra Lee Schwartz (Glinda in Wicked), Victoria Clark (Fairy Godmother in Cinderella), Michael Grief (director of Rent and Next to Normal), Paul McGill (Chorus Line), Heidi Blickenstaff (Little Mermaid), Michael McGoff (Production Stage Manager, La Cage aux Folles Tour), and JV Mercanti (Director/Casting Director).

You are thinking ahead. Whether you plan to pursue a career in theatre or another field, your resume will need to stand out. Spending time meeting with professionals will help you learn what qualities distinguish you from other applicants. The Fordham Summer Musical Theatre Intensive is a segue into an environment that may be unfamiliar to you. Ask questions of industry leaders and test the waters of a new geography. The workshop is a step towards making and sustaining a life-long career.
