About the Show
“A year in the life of a martyred musical theatre wannabe, Anita Boult.”
Anita’s just moved back home. Not to Mom and Dad’s, you understand, just out of New York and back to Peekskill – and it’s not an admission of defeat; just a strategy for recharging batteries and planning a new assault on Broadway.
Observe, then, as Anita seeks to effect her return to the bright lights, grappling with hostile agents, indifferent casting directors, doubting parents, demanding boyfriends, and worst of all, high school rivals still somehow hogging the local limelight.
Meantime, Anita will treat you to gems of known and lesser known songs from such American song writing legends as S. Barber & L. Bernstein. This show has “elements that remind us of Shirly Maclaine, Maureen Lipman and Barbara Streisand,” as quoted by one viewer

Undiscovered (Film Project)
Voice/Meisner Classes – Meisner Workout
Come and explore Repetition and your voice. This class is for actors who want to express themselves with song, for those who want to work on releasing their spoken/singing voice, for those who perhaps feel restricted or self-conscious when singing and for more experienced singer/actors who want to find greater freedom and expression. In a supportive and constructive environment we will explore doing Repetition into song and song into Repetition; how do they work together, help to open each other up? Let’s explore with Repetition into song to encourage more spontaneity, impulse and range of expression and vice versa. Feel free to bring a song with you (will be singing acapella) but this is not a requirement. All abilities and experiences are welcome but participants must have done at least a Meisner Intro.
