Christy Altomare, who most recently originated the title role in Broadway’s “Anastasia,” is coming to Noblesville High School May 9 for an exclusive master class and public performance. The event is sponsored by the NHS Theatre Department & Speech Team.
Students in the master class will learn in-the-field acting technique, vocal exercises, audition tips and more. Producer Evan Elliott, NHS speech coach and assistant thespian director, is excited to bring another Broadway star to NHS. Previously, the performing arts department welcomed “Wicked’s” Jessica Vosk in 2017.
“Affording our students these opportunities is invaluable to their learning experience,” Elliott stated. “We are blessed to have a strong arts culture in Noblesville that supports such offerings, and we are excited to continue hosting artists of such high caliber.”
The master class will run from 5 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Cost is $64 for students in sixth grade through college and includes a ticket to the evening performance. Tickets for the 8 pm. performance in the NHS auditorium are $13 for adults and $8 for students. Patrons are encouraged to purchase tickets online at NoblesvilleTheatre.com. A limited number of tickets will be available at the door.
Altomare will feature hits from her previous works, including “In My Dreams” and “Journey to the Past” from “Anastasia.” Local instrumentalist and instructor Cindy Romano will provide accompaniment for the evening.
A 2008 graduate of the Cincinnati Conservatory of Music, Altomare made her Broadway debut in 2011 as Sophie Sheridan in “Mamma Mia!” Past roles include Sue Snell in “Carrie,” Jerusha Abbott in “Daddy Long Legs” and Wendla Bergmann in the first national tour of Spring Awakening.
