The new century has brought exciting and different styles of song and performance to the American stage. In The Actor Sings you will learn to perform songs from the musical theater of today. Think Hadestown, Jagged Little Pill, Mean Girls, Be More Chill, and The Prom. Under the instruction of a professional theater educator and performer, students spend their days engaging in vocal warm-ups and group exercises, working on individual songs or duets, and giving and receiving feedback with fellow singers. Classes take place in open-air studios with at least one side exposed to Usdan’s beautiful wooded campus. Classes are grouped according to age division and grade. All levels of theatrical experience are welcome.

“I really enjoyed doing each step of preparation learning how to vocalize, choreograph, harmonize, improvise, etc, and the class was very social and fun with the teacher being engaged with the students.”
—Jess

“It was fun, exciting, and helped my vocal skills a lot.”
