Metropolis School of the Performing Arts is thrilled to announce a one of a kind master class experience with Emmy winner and Tony nominee, Liz Callaway. Students will have the opportunity to learn what it means to "act the song," from using your personal emotions to portraying a specific character's emotions. Liz Callaway will work with students in both one-on-one and group settings. The workshop will focus on how to harness and release those emotions to benefit the song and scene. Songs you love will be taken to the next level by allowing your audience to feel it with you. Liz has starred in Miss Saigon, Cats, and Baby on Broadway and was the singing voice of Anya in the Oscar-nominated film Anastasia.
Due to high demand, we are opening our theatre seats to those interested in observing the upcoming Liz Callaway master class! By observing others participating in the master class students can absorb and digest covered topics and techniques without having to battle the nerves of being under the microscope. If you are interested in learning from the great Liz Callaway with a little less pressure then this is the way to go.
The observer fee is $25 and is open to anyone ages 12+. Adults, you are welcome to observe as well.
To register to be an observer you can call the Education Office at (847) 577-5982 x221 or fill out the form below.

High School Stage Combat Workshop - Gaby Labotka, instructor

Ages: Students Grades 9-12

CALLING ALL HIGH SCHOOL THEATRE STUDENTS! This specialized workshop will introduce high school students to the basics of hand-to-hand stage combat in a fun, safe way. When executed correctly, stage combat can not only help to tell a story, but also create a visceral reaction with the audience that enhances any stage production. Students will leave the workshop knowing how to perform some of the most common forms of hand-to-hand stage combat, allowing them to continue these practices in future productions!
