Masterclass with Broadway’s Nancy Opel!
Friday, May 18 from 7pm-9pm
From Nancy Opel :
“I grew up in Kansas City and came to New York to attend the Drama division of the Julliard School. Although it was an intense environment, I received an invaluable level of training as an actor there. Voice, speech, and text interpretation were very strong at school and that knowledge has served me well in my professional career.
One of my early dreams was to work with Harold Prince and Stephen Sondheim and I realized this in my first two New York jobs: the original Broadway productions of Evita and Sunday in the Park with George. In Evita, I was pretty much fresh out of school and began learning the ropes of the professional musical theater scene working with the best of the business at the top of their form. I’ve done a number of musicals since then (you can look at my resume page if you want to see the whole shebang) and I’ve done a fair amount of plays as well. Most notable would be my relationship with the playwright David Ives, whose work I have premiered many times and my collaboration with John Epperson on his adaptation of Euripides’ My Deah. I got an Obie for that one. Woot woot!!!
I have begun working with other actors in a singing/ acting coach capacity and have discovered another aspect of my career that I find exciting and gratifying on both a professional and a personal level: working with other actors as an acting and a singing coach, helping clients find a vibrancy and self-confidence in their work that gives them a distinct advantage in their lives as professional actors.”
