A 1-DAY workshop to learn how to draw casting directors and audiences into your intimate, on-screen musical performance.
Practice song analysis that leads to a truthful performance on camera. Bring forward your own unique self expression, and rethink how you find the honesty in songs for auditions and performance for stage or camera.
The camera reveals even more if you are authentic and in the moment. The camera is a brilliant marker for your honest work—you can’t lie to a camera, you can’t lie in a close up. This is why it’s becoming even more crucial to be able to work moment-to-moment in your musical theater acting.
This workshop is applicable to singing on stage or in film/TV. (Who’s looking forward to the West Side Story remake, or the In the Heights movie?) In addition to your musical series like Glee or Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist, sometimes regular TV shows break into song! (Think Grey’s Anatomy or Crazy Ex-Girlfriend! Robert Morse in Mad Men, anyone?)
This 1-DAY workshop is great for anyone who wants to deepen their creative expression while acting a song. Andy will guide you towards bringing a sense of who you are to your audition or performance.
If you have ever felt stalled or stuck in accessing a deeper personal connection, or if you’ve ever felt like you’re winging it every time with no real process that you can count on, this class is for you.
Having a logical process can free you up artistically and creatively.
This workshop is for actors who love to sing.
Andy Señor Jr. was born and raised in Miami, Florida. He was the Associate Director of Gloria and Emilio Estefan’s musical On Your Feet! on Broadway, Netherlands, and UK West End Productions as well as Roundabout Theatre Company’s Broadway production of Irving Berlin’s Holiday Inn. He served as Associate Director on the new musical Fly at Dallas Theatre Center w Jeffrey Seller. Andy made his professional debut in the Tony Award winning musical RENT as “Angel,” playing the role on Broadway, London’s West End, and US National and International Tours. Later he became the Assistant Director to Michael Greif on the RENT revival Off Broadway, and went on to re-stage the production in Tokyo, Japan and the historic production in Havana, Cuba. Most recently he directed two new Nilo Cruz plays, Tsunami and Farhad and the Secret of Being. He holds a BFA in Theatre from Florida International University who honored him with a Torch Award, noting him as a distinguished alumni, and further trained at The Public Theater’s Shakespeare LAB where he appeared in All’s Well That Ends Well at the Public Theater. In the spring of 2021 his directorial debut documentary, Revolution Rent, will be released with Neil Patrick Harris as the Executive Producer on HBO.
Andy has a keen sensitivity to when you are in your truth zone for character and song. He guides actors gently and firmly—I’ve watched him completely transform performances in musical theater. His approach will ground you in the text and you will learn to not miss a beat, emotionally and musically.
