Shreveport Little Theatre/Academy has announced that Tony Award-nominated actress and singer, Laura Bell Bundy, is coming to Shreveport this February. She will be hosting an audition workshop as well as headlining a mini-concert at the beloved theatre.
Bundy began her career in the entertainment world at age 9 with the Radio City Christmas Spectacular. This debut eventually led to well-known roles as the original Elle Woods in Legally Blonde and the original Amber Von Tussle in Hairspray on Broadway. She has also starred as Dr. Jordan Denby on the television show, Anger Management.
The Masterclass workshop is set for Saturday, February 16 at 3:30pm at Shreveport Little Theatre. Bundy will be focusing on audition techniques, especially for young musical theater actors. Since the Masterclass student participation is already at maximum capacity, Shreveport Little Theatre is offering observer tickets available for purchase. The observer ticket allows a chance to see Bundy at work during the Masterclass with tickets being priced at $20 for adults and $15 for students.
Broadway Belters Encore performance will follow the workshop at the theatre on the evening of February 16th at 7:30pm. The concert will feature headliner Laura Bell Bundy and other local performers such as Linnea Fayard Allen, Anna Maria Patton, and Barbara Holmes.
