 **********  

Jana Kogen, an experienced NYC agent who has represented many young stars who have made it big on Broadway, and has helped us cast From Stage to Screen shows, held an audition workshop for those auditioning for college or any theater production.  Jana helped pinpoint the actors' strengths and challenges, and helped them to figure out how best to represent themselves at auditions! 

**********

Jon Smith, one of the most talented singers to come through From Stage to Screen now heads a Vocal A Capella group at the University of Delaware, where he is currently a senior.  Our students who missed his fabulous A Capella workshop this summer (or wanted to brush up on their skills), had a blast at Jon's A Capella mini-workshop!

Matilda/Newsies Worshop

Our students LOVED the Matilda/Newsies Workshop presented by


RYAN STEELE

Ryan is the star of the new movie Five Dances!

In Five Dances, Ryan plays Chip, 'an extraordinarily talented 18-year-old recently arrived from Kansas who joins a small downtown modern dance company. In his first weeks of rehearsal, Chip is initiated into the rites of passage of a New York dancer's life, where discipline and endless hard work, camaraderie and competitiveness, the fear of not being good enough, and the joy of getting it just right, inform every minute of every day.'

 

Ryan was also recently featured in Matilda, and has appeared in Newsies and West Side Story

and

MICHAEL FATICA

Currently Dance Captain in Newsies

 

Workshop included Q&A with our guests, followed by learning the vocals and dance combinations for 2 songs--1 from NEWSIES and the other from MATILDA!

We're also excited to announce that Agent JANA KOGEN joined us at the workshop!
