MALTZ JUPITER THEATRE’S CONSERVATORY
launching ‘In the Style Of’ program
(Jupiter) – This year the Maltz Jupiter Theate Conservatory launches “In the Style Of” series, which will offer an extra special opportunity for Conservatory students to be selected for free, unique dance workshops with cast members from the Theatre’s upcoming 2013/14 musicals Annie, A Chorus Line and The King and I. Attendees will be selected via lottery, open to all currently enrolled students.“We are very excited to launch our ‘In the Style Of’ program,” Rowe said. “Each workshop will be taught by veteran Broadway performers who will be performing on the Theatre’s stage. It’s a thrilling opportunity for our students to learn directly from experienced, talented performers.”
The Conservatory offers a range of ballet, jazz, tap and hip hop dance classes, as well as courses in playwriting, improv and audition techniques. Students in the Conservatory’s signature Musical Theatre Production class will perform in The Pajama Game on the Maltz Jupiter Theatre stage in May.
In addition to established instructors Brian Andrews, Jay Johnson, Anna McNeely, Sarah-Helen Land, Kristine DiMartino, Lea Roy, Kenneth Kay and Kim Cozort Kay, the Conservatory is also welcoming two new faculty members: international performers Ricky Nahas and May Elizabeth Rich.
Recently seen onstage at the Theatre in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, Nahas is a musical theatre performer, choreographer and dance teacher who has spent more than a decade performing in national tours, regional theater and in theaters throughout Europe. He recently directed and choreographed June’s Senior Conservatory production of Little Shop of Horrors at the Conservatory, and also choreographed the Theatre’s production of the new musical Through the Looking Glass, which premiered in 2012 and will return to the Theatre’s stage in November.
Mary Elizabeth Rich has also performed on the Theatre’s stage, most recently in The Music Man and also Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. She has performed in Broadway National Tours, European tours, countless regional productions, as well as in television and film. She completed her undergraduate studies at the Mason Gross School of the Arts at Rutgers University and graduate work in theatre at Circle in the Square in New York City. She has taught voice and acting to children, teens and adults for over a decade.
