Acting Naturally Youth Company had an unbelievable experience in NYC! It began with a private master dance class with Christopher Young from a Bronx Tale followed by Tom D'Angora - Director/Producer The Marvelous Wonderettes – held a vocal audition master class for our Youth. Saturday our actors performed and did a wonderful job! Sue Delano (My Fair Lady- Bway, Cabaret - Bway, and National Tour with Liza Minnelli) and Meredith Akins (Bway - Wicked, Footloose Momma Mia) Sunday, we saw Once on This Island – A MUST SEE!!!! Followed by a private talk back with the Associate Producer Valerie Novacoff. The experiences we shared and guidance we received from these BroadwayProfessionals is indescribable! Thank you to everyone who took the time to see our show and teach us more of our trade! NYC we will be back! #BuckstoBroadway
