NEWS: Kids' Masterclass with Broadway Star Emerson Mae Chan at Centerstage Youth Theatre

Updated: Apr 22

April 7th 2024


Sometimes you have a crazy idea that becomes a reality! When I learned my former student Emerson Mae Chan (1st National Tour, Mrs. Doubtfire the Musical) would be performing in Tampa, I wondered if she would want to teach her first masterclass.

A class for kids, taught by a kid! What could be more fun?

Emmy and I worked together to build a lesson plan that would be experiential, allow her to share performance tips, and ease her into the role of instructor. The day included a name game, participating in Emmy's "pre-show warm up," learning a Mrs. Doubtfire-inspired dance and a Q&A with Emmy and her amazing mom Lindsay Chan.

Q&A Topics Included:

⭐ Emmy's journey from drama class to Broadway

⭐ A parent's role in their child's acting career

⭐ The Mrs. Doubtfire audition process

⭐ Balancing family and #tourlife

A huge thank you to all the people who made this workshop possible, in particular James Faurote (Artistic Director, Center Stage Youth Theatre).
