We are thrilled to welcome multiple-award-winning Michael Rafter for a vocal audition Master Class here at Diamond Head Theatre! Michael Rafter is an Emmy Award-winning arranger and musical director, best known for his work on Broadway and for his collaborations with Sutton Foster. He recently taped “Live From Lincoln Center” with Ms. Foster, airing in the spring of ‘18 on PBS. As a vocal coach, Mr. Rafter has coached actors such as Adam Driver and Emily Blunt; he’s conducted “Gypsy” both on Broadway, and for the TV movie starring Bette Midler. Mr. Rafter has also musically supervised Broadway and/or national touring companies of shows such as “Thoroughly Modern Millie”; “Swing” and “Jersey Boys”!
This class offers the opportunity for 12 lucky (first come, first served!) individuals to work directly with Mr. Rafter. And even better, if you’re not feeling quite so brave, the opportunity to be an “observer” and see up close and personally, how it all works!
Participants who are chosen, should come prepared with an audition song (the full song or a minimum cut of 1 minute) and provide their own music. Those who register to watch and get tips, just need to bring themselves.
