Training Tent

Want to feel like an athletic magician with the words and music in your rep book?




In the Vocal Acrobats and Storytellers masterclass series, coaches and current Walnut Street Theatre actors Jenna Pastuszek (The Winter Wonderettes) and Tara Tagliaferro (Matilda) are combining forces to sharpen and season the song rep of Philly musical theatre artists so no one is left feeling like a machine this audition season. Think of this as an early gift to yourself for the holidays!

12pm-3pm at MT Philly (12th & Spruce).

Auditioning for musical theatre does not need to feel like a 3-ring circus.

Why you should take the Vocal Acrobats and Storytellers masterclass series

To get in shape, remember your magic, and hop out of your own way in order to compete at the top of your game and book work

To stop feeling stuck, in your head, and/or uninspired with your rep

To practice and play with new or old material in a safe space with two women who got your back


To embrace auditions rather than resist them

To cross train the voice in different vocal and musical styles

To spark authentic and reliable connections to your pieces

To learn in a community experience that will celebrate everyone’s unique flavor and fierceness 


To feel confident and back in the driver’s seat of your career van
