I also will be playing the role of Sister Margaretta and I instantly fell in love with the character. She is the one who really sticks up for Maria so keep that in mind as you potray her. Also, She has a sense of humor that you can also use, just do what you think would be best for the character and come up with little things that make her unique. Ask questions to yourself about her to think about her and take risks. Do not forget to throw a little bit of yourself into the character because it is you who is making the character.

Expertise

I have been a director, dramaturg, actor and acting coach for over twenty-five years and am happy to share my expertise in learning to act, character development, taking direction, acting styles and techniques, auditioning techniques, how to choose an audition monologue or song (but NOT specific audition songs or monologues), learning lines, script analysis, acting in musicals, dramas, comedies, farces, mysteries and even new plays in their first productions. I am NOT a voice teacher or vocal coach. My expertise is in acting and directing, not in singing. I can not advise you on specific audition songs, vocal exercises, how to stretch your range or on solving vocal problems. For that you need an expert on singing and vocal work. And there is at least one very good one on this list.

Experience

I have been a director, dramaturg, actor and acting coach in the NYC/NJ area for over twenty-four years. I have directed dramas, comedies, musicals, mysteries, thrillers and farces as well as directing original plays in staged readings, workshops, showcases and world premieres. I have worked with all level of actors from amateurs to Equity, from children to seniors.
