The workshop, How to Survive a Dance and Music Audition, is part of our audition workshop series.

Cornelious is best known by Tampa audiences as the Caterpillar in the Straz Center’s production of Wonderland in 2011. He is currently on tour with Sister Act, now playing at the Straz Center through Dec. 16.

This is your chance to work with a seasoned professional whose Broadway credits include: The Scottsboro Boys, A Chorus Line (Revival), The Music Man (Revival), Kat & the Kings and The Lion King. His national tours include Dirty Dancing, Hairspray, The Lion King, A Chorus Line, The Goodbye Girl and The Wiz. He also portrayed the role of Sammy Davis Jr. in the London’s West End production of The Rat Pack.

E. Clayton Cornelious is a native of Pittsburgh. He attended Point Park University of Pittsburgh and received a BA in Theatre Arts.

At the upcoming workshop, you’ll learn how to pick an audition song that suits your voice, how to handle choreography for a dance audition and how to assemble an audition book. Students will then be led through a mock audition and receive feedback on their performance.

The workshop will be from 5 to 8 p.m. The cost is $50. To register online, click here, or for more information or to register by phone, call 813-222-1002.

The Patel Conservatory at the Straz Center offers classes in dance, music and theater. We are located in downtown Tampa, so please allow plenty of time to park and sign-in.

The audition workshop series will be offered again in February, 2013.
