Tony Award-Winner Ben Vereen Hosts Bay Street Master Class

Bay Street Theater & Sag Harbor Center for the Arts presents an eight-part online Master Class in Acting led by Tony Award-winner Ben Vereen. Classes will meet Mondays from 7 to 10 PM starting April 25 through June 13 via Zoom.

Ben not only brings his talent as an actor and entertainer, but his knowledge of taking the content and bringing it into another dimension of interpretation. Within each three-hour class, he will work with students on either a portion of a song or a monologue of their choice, breaking down the form and language, before circling back with an individual sense of style and self-confidence. Following each person’s performance, Ben will lead a question-and-answer session that involves the students.

Vereen’s first love and passion is and always will be the stage. “The theater was my first training ground. It taught me discipline, dedication, and appreciation of hard work and values that will stay with me for a lifetime. The stage sharpens the creative instrument and encourages you to go deeper inside and try new things,” he state.

Vereen recently wrapped the Chuck Lorre series “B Positive” on CBS, and earlier this spring, completed multiple episodes of “The Good Fight,” playing Frederick Douglass. Among his many credits he also co-starred with Richard Gere in “Time Out Of Mind,” Chris Rock in “Top Five,” and was featured as Dr. Scott in the re-imagined “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” for 20th Century Fox.

This is an exclusive opportunity to work with the Tony Award-winning master, who will guide students through the craft of dramatic acting and musical theater.

Registration is open to teens ages 13 and up and adults, and is $300 for all eight sessions or $600 for high schools and colleges registering up to 10 students. Drop-in rates are available for $50 per day. For more information, visit
