It is not just actors in rep that are required to be highly adaptable. Any musical theatre performer needs to develop a versatile voice and a knowledge of the key characteristics of the individual contrasting musicals. In any given week the actor can be rehearsing Disney, preparing for Les Mis or auditioning for a folk musical. How does the singer negotiate these different genres easily while maintaining the musical integrity of each show?

This day will address the major components in training the voice and the style characteristics necessary to be able to successfully move from one genre to another. We will focus particularly on Rogers and Hammerstein, Sondheim and the Disney musicals but will also address other styles during the day.

The day will include:

•   What is ‘Style’?

•   Key technical skills required

•   Vocal characteristics of individual composers

•   Shifting between styles within the same show

•   Common pitfalls and how to avoid them

•   Short master class

Suitable for: People new to the model; those familiar with the Model, looking for clarification and consolidation; singers and teachers; students and professionals.
