Brett Schrier to Teach Broadway Playground Master Class in Milwaukee This June
Direct from New York, Broadway Playground provides local opportunity on June 25 and 26 (June 13, 2016) - Broadway Playground is heading to the Milwaukee area to offer Musical Theatre Audition Workshop for local performers of all ages. Taught by Broadway Vocal Coach/Music Director, Brett Schrier, this one-day event teaches "inside tricks" to standing out at singing auditions - whether it's your high school musical, entrance audition for college, or taking the next step in your professional career.
Brett Schrier's musical directing credits include Hairspray (National Tour), 42nd Street (National Tour), Scooby-Doo Live! (Warner Bros.), Chuggington (Disney Channel), Les Miserables, and Cats. His students are currently featured in Broadway and touring companies of Hamilton, Wicked, Mamma Mia, The Book Of Mormon, The Lion King, Kinky Boots, Rock of Ages, and Chicago. Brett is also Vocal Director for Royal Caribbean International - and has written three original musicals currently licensed and produced by theatre companies around the globe.
"Broadway Playground is a magical experience," said Schrier. "It provides performers of all ages exposure to the very best performing arts training in the nation - while connecting them with the top Casting Directors, Choreographers, Music Directors, Agents, and Dance Captains in the industry. It's important emerging performers in all areas of the country - not just New York City - have these kind of opportunities. That's what makes Broadway Playground the real deal."
Recent Broadway Playground instructors included Joy Dewing, CSA (Joy Dewing Casting), Bob Cline, CSA (Bob Cline Casting), Kaitlin Shaw, CSA (Tara Rubin Casting), Stephen Carrasco (Dance Captain; Broadway's Kinky Boots), JR Bruno (Dance Captain; Broadway's The Book of Mormon), and Terry Berland (Los Angeles Commercial Casting Director).
"Broadway Playground dares us all to take risks and strive to be the best we can be - both onstage and off," said Schrier. "After huge responses in New York, Minneapolis, and Kansas City, I can't wait to spread the magic of music and theatre throughout Milwaukee."
