Chappaqua Performing Arts Center (ChappPAC) is gearing up for a new season of musical theatre educational programming in 2019 with a trio of free children’s workshops. Led by experienced musical theatre instructors, including veterans of the Broadway stage, the workshops are designed to help youth age 7 and up hone their acting, singing, and performance skills.
Dubbed Westchester Magazine’s 2018 Best Musical Venue, ChappPAC will offer workshops on select Saturdays from 11:00am – 1:30pm. Each session will culminate in an on stage student performance for family and friends. The workshops also feature a “talkback session” with instructors to provide participants with the opportunity to learn directly from those successful in the theatre industry.
On Saturday, March 2, ChappPAC is offering another unique opportunity for blossoming theatre enthusiasts with Yes You Can: Empowerment Through Musical Theatre Workshop. In the words of ChappPAC manager John Fanelli, this particular workshop is designed to encourage students to “let go of fear and doubt to get yourself on stage and in that show!” The event will foster a fun and encouraging environment, allowing students to take both their performance skills and confidence to the next level with guidance from actor and choreographer Michael Fielder (Off Broadway, National Tours: Carnival, Mambo Kings, Havana After Dark).
