What do you get when you have an award-winning theater program? An award-winning lineup of Broadway's top talent coming to work with you. This past year Kingswood was thrilled to host three of Broadway's best names, each of whom ran a masterclass with our young thespians. Stay tuned for more big names coming in the 2019-20 season!
Appearing in 10 Broadway shows and with over 40 film and television credits, Broadway triple threat Deidre Goodwin came to KO in January and did a master class with theater students. Goodwin played Sheila Bryant in the 2006 revival of A Chorus Line, then followed that role with a star turn as Velma Kelly in Chicago in 2009.
In May of 2019, Ben Fankhauser's came to KO to run a masterclass. His Broadway credits include (Newsies, Original Broadway Cast), National Tours: Spring Awakening, Beautiful - The Carole King Musical. Television/Film: The Deuce, Twenty Something, It Could Be Worse, and Submissions Only. Fankhauser originated the role of Davey in Newsies at Paper Mill Playhouse before bringing the show to Broadway.
Finally, this past June, Jessica Lee Goldyn (A CHORUS LINE, TUCK EVERLASTING, FINDING NEVERLAND, and more!) held a Broadway Masterclass in New York City with KO students focusing on dance audition training combined with a physical technique workshop. She taught a rigorous physical warm-up, audition combinations, and finessed technique all while providing individual feedback to each student!
