Sister Act cast visits Conservatory students

Broadway actor Karen Elliott will visit our Patel Conservatory musical theater students tomorrow.

Elliott plays Mary Theresa in the Broadway tour of Sister Act, now playing here at the Straz Center through Dec. 16. Our musical theater class will enjoy a field trip to see the show tonight as part of their musical theater training.

On Friday, Elliott will visit the class as well as our audition workshop, How to Survive a Dance and Music Audition. She’ll share audition tips and offer feedback for the vocal part of the audition workshop. Co-star E. Clayton Cornelious will join her at the audition workshop and offer feedback on handling choreography.

Meet and greet opportunities such as these with visiting artists are just one more Patel perk for our students!

Elliott’s credits include Les Miserables, Kiss Me, Kate, 42nd Street and Phantom.
She has a master’s degree in vocal performance from the Juilliard School and a bachelor’s in music from The Peabody Institute of Johns Hopkins University. 

She is also a Certified Consulting Hypnotist with a practice specializing in issues for performing artists and athletes who must perform "at the top of their game" on a regular basis.

If you'd like to attend Friday's workshop with Elliott and Cornelious, please call 813-222-1002.
