New for Summer 2019 …

Bill Reed Voice Studio “Singers on Stage” Series presents

“Acting through Song” with Alan Langdon and Bill Reed

A Four-Day Intensive Experience

Tuesday, June 25 through Friday, June 28, 2019 • Spotlight Vermont

Participants ages 13 through adult will work on a musical theater song, as well as a monologue, with me, Broadway alum Elisa Van Duyne, and the venerable Alan Langdon, who will be traveling from New York City to coach student and adult studio members on acting technique. This format is particularly valuable to performers who are planning on auditioning for school, community theater, and college programs. Over the 30-plus years that Alan and I have presented the June Intensive, students of all ages have found this training to be a life-changing experience.

To register, please email with the participant’s name, email address, and cell phone number. (Students must be at least 13 years old to register.) For students younger than 18, please also include birthdate, school, and parent or guardian name. We will respond with additional forms and an invoice for the required, nonrefundable $200 deposit. Your registration will be confirmed once payment is received.

This is a very special opportunity to develop essential performance skills in a convenient location with one of the most revered acting teachers in the country. Join us on this adventure into the art of the actor.
