Contact(s): Bob Hoffman Wharton Center office: (517) 884-3115 bob.hoffman@whartoncenter.com

Wharton Center is proud to welcome Paul Canaan and his non-profit arts organization, Take It From The Top, back to the Pasant Theatre on Jan. 19, for a special collaboration with ANASTASIA, and we invite students to be a part.

The collaboration is a day-long immersion in Broadway production. In the morning, associate choreographer for ANASTASIA on Broadway, Adam Cates, with the help of some touring cast members,* will work alongside students in master class sessions structured to improve singing, dancing and acting skills and utilizing material straight from ANASTASIA.

In the afternoon, students will watch this top-notch touring Broadway production and engage in a talkback session with the cast to discover what it is like to be a professional actor on a major national tour.

To maintain an atmosphere of direct mentoring with the professionals, class enrollment will be limited to 60 students, ranging from 14-18 years old. Registration for this extraordinary educational experience will close Jan. 3. Please contact Kelly Stuible-Clark for further information at stuible3@whartoncenter.com or 517-884-3166.
