First Experience = Success!

I wanted to say a huge THANK YOU for making my daughter's first experience with musical theater a success. She attended the audition work shop last night and hasn't stopped glowing, dancing, and singing since. No matter the outcome of this audition, the experience after just one session has been so amazing. Mr. Michaels energy was infectious and even after teaching the same workshop for 3 hours - he had just as much energy at the end of the night as I am sure he did earlier! WOW! We are so thankful for everything you do and are really looking forward to being involved!!

While at Marymount, he was the President of both the Residence Hall Council and the Musical Theatre Association; where he created multiple performing opportunities for the students, including full length musicals and workshops. During his second year at Marymount, Michael was exposed to the world of directing and choreographing during the full school musical Sweet Charity, where he associate directed and choreographed for Broadway’s Jeff Shade.

His most notable off-Broadway directing credit was for the New York Musical Theatre Festival (NYMF) where he was the associate director for Mother, Wife, and the Complicated Life. He most recently directed Legally Blonde Jr., Seussical Jr., Shrek Jr. and All Shook Up.  He is excited to be in San Diego and loves teaching and directing young performers and sharing his passion and knowledge of theatre with his students.
