|Broadway Performer Shares Wisdom With Students|
A group of Wardlaw-Hartridge students enjoyed a wonderful experience with Broadway performer Jonathan Schwartz at a special theatre workshop on May 11.
Mr. Schwartz had all of the students sing 16 measures of a song of their choice and coached them on how to give their best audition. He also handed out "sides" or short dramatic readings and coached the students on how to deliver lines in character. In the last 30 minutes, he opened it up to a question and answer session. Students and parents had wonderful questions and the students said that his responses were really instructive and informative for them.
