Marcus Center-Acting and Vocal Master Class with Cast Members from AN AMERICAN IN PARIS

The Marcus Center for the Performing Arts and Milwaukee Public Schools continue to partner for the Center's performing arts outreach program - Arts Connect. The Center is thrilled to announce this program is continuing to grow with its fourth Summer Arts Camp during the run of the Broadway show, An American in Paris. This opportunity is free of cost and includes students from MPS' Riverside University High School, Ronald Reagan College Preparatory High School and Milwaukee High School of the Arts who have a strong interest in the performing arts. This program gives these students access to arts professionals and the chance to experience various aspects of the performing arts industry first hand.

This year's Summer Arts Camp begins Monday, June 25 and runs through Friday, June 29. Various workshops will be held throughout the week including dance warm ups with Chris DeAngelo Gilbert, how to apply for college with a variety of Wisconsin colleges, workshop with Bronzeville Arts Ensemble and Optimist Theatre and much more!

The arts camp wraps up with an acting and vocal master class with cast members from An American in Paris. These two classes will teach the students how to stand out in a casting room, perfect a monologue, create memorable characters, vocal auditions, vocal technique and more. The students will then get a chance to see An American in Paris live on Sunday, July 1.

"The Marcus Center values our partnership with Milwaukee Public Schools and the opportunity to share the national caliber of Broadway productions with their students," said Paul Mathews, President and CEO of the Marcus Center. "This program is a vital piece of our commitment to using art to build bridges between diverse parts of our community. We will continue to expand our efforts with the help of our generous sponsors."

"Associated Bank is proud to be the premier sponsor of Broadway at the Marcus Center, including the award-winning An American in Parisperformance," said John Halechko, Associated's EVP and Director of Branch Banking. "As part of our sponsorship, we are honored to support the An American in Paris acting and vocal workshop. This activity offers high school students an opportunity to learn about the performing arts surrounding a story about diversity of human expression and identity that creates opportunity."
