Song and Monologue Interpretation Workshop With Betty Buckley

By Byrne Harrison

This is the last weekend to register for Betty Buckley's celebrated “Song and Monologue Interpretation Workshop” on June 29 through July 2, 2010, at “The Jason Bennett Actor's Workshop in New York City.”

Tony-award-winning Buckley will share her unique, practical performance methods with aspiring young artists, educators and professional performers. Ms. Buckley will guide students through psycho-spiritual, contemplative processes, meditations and exercises that facilitate presence and deep audience connection in performance.

Jason Bennett, founder of "The Jason Bennett Actor's Workshop" says, "Our community of working artists is thrilled and honored Ms. Buckley will join us to share her wisdom. Her generosity to students and passion for teaching is in the time-honored tradition of working artists mentoring new generations of performers. She has developed her own approach to the work, as all great performers do. Her work goes beyond performing, it's an approach to living, as with all deep explorations of creative process.”

"Betty Buckley's Song and Monologue Interpretation Workshop" will consist of four sessions beginning Tuesday, June 29th through Friday, July 2nd. Each session begins at 12:00 noon and lasts 4 hours.

This is the kind of thing I'd love to attend - if only I didn't have a day job...of course, if I didn't have a day job, I wouldn't be able to afford it anyway.
