Please join Sheri Sanders, author of Rock the Audition: How to Prepare for and Get Cast in Rock Musicals, for a free workshop hosted by the Berklee Musical Theater Club with help by the Screen Actors Guild Foundation and sponsored by the Voice Department.

As a musical theater actress insisting on her own diversity and pliability, Sanders has had profound success performing roles from the late Kitty Genovese in The Screams Of Kitty Genovese to Little Becky Two Shoes on the national tour of Urinetown. Sanders piloted her masterclass, Rock the Audition, at Pace University, and since then has taught with the Tepper Semester at Syracuse University, the Conservatory at Papermill Playhouse, Oklahoma City University, University of Oklahoma, San Diego State University, Millikin University, Jersey City University, Rider College, with Making It On Broadway, Capes Coaching, Actors Connection, TVI, and School of Rock, and is a rock musical repertoire coach and private audition coach in New York City. Backstage paid a visit to her rock class, wrote an article about her leading a revolution, and the next thing you know, she was asked to create the pilot episode of the reality television show My Time on the Oprah Winfrey Network. Sanders was then immediately invited by Hal Leonard books to be the first person to ever write a book on auditioning for rock musicals. Her students have been found in touring companies and regional productions of Rock Of Ages, Wonderland, Sister Act, Mamma Mia!, Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson, American Idiot, Spring Awakening, Wicked, The Wedding Singer, Hairspray, Legally Blonde, Rent, Shout, Fat Camp, Cyndi Lauper's Kinki Boots, Sting's The Last Ship, and Regina Spektor's Beauty. Sanders is doing a worldwide tour with Rock the Audition to promote her book, do her rock concert, Rock the Audition-Live!, and teach teachers and their students how to holistically embody the essence of the rock musical they are auditioning for. Then she's gonna come back to New York and act and teach like Uta Hagen.
