Class Experience

Raue Center School For The Arts is thrilled to present a Masterclass taught by Broadway veterans John Bolton (The Wizard) and Marina Lazzaretto (Female Swing), stars of the National Tour of Wicked, now appearing at the Nederlander Theatre! 


This Masterclass is brought to you in part through the generous support of the Johnny Carson Foundation.


John and Marina will take participants through dances in the style of Wicked as well as a brief audition workshop.  Also, these extraordinary performers will share stories from their time on Broadway and touring around the country. 


Tickets are $10 for RaueNOW Members and $15 for the General Public. 


We will be ending the evening with a Q&A, so please feel free to submit questions in advance to rcsaeducation@rauecenter.org. These questions can be about anything from 'What's your favorite show you've ever been in?' to 'How do you succeed on Broadway?'
