With all of the buzz surrounding Wicked’s two and a half week touring run at the Orpheum, Lausanne was thrilled to welcome Glinda from Wicked to the Lausanne stage this past Saturday.
Our Lausanne thespians in attendance had an unforgettable experience taking their musical theatre skills to new heights. This one-time only master class was with Allison Bailey, the Glinda understudy of the tour, who familiarized them with the musical. They learned the story line, information about the songs, who the characters are, how the songs push the story forward and the intentions.
They completed a movement warm-up and then the actors dove into a fun and high-energy dance combination learning choreography the show, bringing their characters to life. Lyrics were then introduced so that the students learned to put movement and vocals together in a show-stopping Broadway number.
Finally, the class incorporated audition techniques which gave students insight into a real Broadway audition, from what to wear to what’s on a resume.
It was a wonderfully Popular experience.
