This summer, focus on the thing you love in a city you'll love, NYC. Created by the Theatre Program at Fordham College at Lincoln Center, the Fordham Summer Musical Theatre Intensive is an affordable five-week, four-credit training program that allows young artists to train and gain access to the professional business of musical storytelling.

Our stellar faculty includes Actress, Director and Teacher, Julie Boyd; Emmy and Grammy award-winning theatre producer John McDaniel; Master Teacher in Vocal Technique and award-winning actor, David Sabella; director, choreographer and actor, Alfie Parker; and accompanist, David Gaines.

From May 31-June 30, 2022, each day presents a varied schedule of four primary classes: Musical Theatre Workshop, Vocal Technique, Dance for Musical Theatre, and Master Classes in Acting and Theatre Games. The faculty offer practical experience and varied techniques to help students push beyond their theatrical comfort zone.

On-campus housing is available at Fordham’s Lincoln Center campus on West 60th Street in Manhattan, at the northern end of the Broadway Theatre District.

Students will enjoy visits from luminaries and forge contacts with our guest speakers, including reputable talent agents and managers, who specifically address topics pertaining to breaking into the business and promoting a healthy and strategic career. Past guest speakers include Bartlett Sher, Michael Grief, Mark Brokaw, Victoria Clark, Jason Tam, Lisa Iacucci, Michael McGoff, and Philip Carlson. 

This summer, from July 5-August 4, 2022, students will have the option to continue to hone their craft in a second course, Solo Vocal Performance Workshop, taught by David Sabella. Grounded in the history and culture of Cabaret performance, this class will prepare students to perform their own two-piece set for open mic nights and the Cabaret venues anywhere.
