Workshops and Master Class

LTN is hosting several workshops, including a master class with Broadway’s Stephen Reed, for participants age 13 and up. Space is limited. Register by emailing melissa.sullivan67@gmail.com or by calling 757-477-6994.


WORKSHOP #3The Director’s Vision presented by Christa Vogt, MA, Virginia Beach City Public Schools. (Limit 15 participants).
Do you ever wonder exactly how two productions of the same play can look and feel quite different? This workshop will explore how directors come up with their concept for a production. You will have the opportunity to apply the process using a short script to articulate your vision.
March 21, 2020 (10 AM – 1 PM)


MASTER CLASS – Auditioning & Performance presented by Stephen Reed, Director – Ballet Arts Center for Dance, NYC. (Limit 30 participants).
Stephen Reed has appeared in six different Tony Award-winning Broadway musicals including Once Upon A Mattress (starring Sarah Jessica Parker & Jane Krakowski), How to Succeed in Business (starring Matthew Broderick) Crazy For You, Jerome Robbins’ Broadway, 110 in the Shade, and Cats (Rum Tug Tugger). He has performed in Broadway touring productions such as Ragtime, Kiss Me Kate, 42nd Street, A Chorus Line, Evita, and Annie Get Your Gun (starring Donna McKechnie). Stephen is a full member of Actor’s Equity Association (AEA), the Stage Directors and Choreographers Union (SDC), American Guild of Performing Artists (AGMA), and The American Guild of Variety Artists (AGVA) and works internationally as a performer, teacher, and theater coach.

Mr. Reed leads this workshop in two sessions.

Session 1 – Vocal Audition Techniques: Learn to present yourself and your audition material like a pro and work with Mr. Reed on bringing material to life in a high-pressure audition setting. Please prepare vocal material for coaching and feedback.

Session 2 – Dance Audition Tips & Tricks: Learn a series of survival dance steps every theatre actor should know, plus choreography from a currently-running Broadway musical to get a feel for what triple-threat performance is all about. Audience members are invited for an exhibition at the end of the workshop. *$100 per person.
April 3, 2020 (6 PM – 9 PM)
April 4, 2020 (10 AM – 5 PM) – Lunch included.


WORKSHOP #4Where Are You From? presented by Louise A. Casini Hollis, MFA, VCU.
From the streets of New York to the shining California coast, America has many regions, all of which have cultivated their own sound. Each dialect carries a world of information about the characters we encounter in the stories we portray. This workshop focuses on what gives a dialect it’s unique sound, and how dialects differ from region to region. Use of the International Phonetic Alphabet will be taught as well as basic sound changes to use for some of the American dialects actors are called upon to use most frequently.
