Master class with Broadway actor Quentin Darrington

Quentin Earl Darrington works with our students during
rehearsal for the summer production of The Little Mermaid Jr

Quentin Earl Darrington has gone from the Straz Center to Broadway and back again.

The actor began his professional career here at the Straz Center in productions at the Jaeb Theater, and worked his way up to perform in the Broadway revival of Ragtime! He’s been acting professionally since he graduated from the University of South Florida, and his credits include the Broadway tours of Memphis: A New Musical, The Lion King and The Color Purple,.

Darrington returns to the Patel Conservatory at the Straz Center to lead a two-day master class at the end of the month. He’ll coach students in acting, voice and movement.

Quentin worked with Conservatory students during some of our summer camps and productions. His gift for teaching was truly evident through the students’ appreciative responses to his insights and coaching. We look forward to working with him again!
