We are excited to announce that Tony Award-Winning actress, Victoria Clark, will give a master class to students of the voice area on Wednesday, August 29 at 3:30 pm in Person Recital Hall. Coordinated by Assistant Professor and Director of Opera Workshop, Dr. Marc Callahan, Ms. Clark will coach five students on everything from vocal technique to stage presence and delivery.
Equally at home on stage and in the teaching studio, Victoria Clark maintains an active schedule of performing, directing, and teaching. Her first Broadway credit came from the original production of Sunday in the Park with George, which she booked while still in graduate school. Since then she has gone on to star in productions such as a revival of Gigi, Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella, and Sister Act. Perhaps most notably she starred in Adam Guettel’s The Light in the Piazza (click here to watch her performance with co-star Kelli O’Hara at the 2005 Tony Awards), for which she won the Tony Award for Leading Actress in a Musical.
Victoria has also had a robust career in directing, both musicals and operas. Directing credits include productions with institutions such as Texas Opera Theater, Philadelphia Opera, and Chautauqua Opera. In 2017 she directed the World Premiere of The Trouble With Doug for The Fredericia Theater in Fredericia, Denmark. And in 2016 she won the New York Musical Theater Festival’s award for Best Director for the production of Heath Saunders and Kim Saunders’ Newton’s Cradle.
We are thrilled for the incredible knowledge that our voice students, and all in attendance, will gain from Ms. Clark’s teachings tomorrow afternoon.
