Straight From New York- “Something’s Rotten” Marisha Wallace
Wallace steps off the stage of Something Rotten on Broadway and comes to Dallas for an intensive show workshop. One of the best ways to learn is by observing fellow performers. Masterclasses and workshops are taught by top level Broadway artists and allow students to receive direct feedback on a song or monologue in a comfortable and encouraging group environment. Students benefit from:
▪ Performing and receiving individual feedback from a Broadway star.
▪ Observing your peers perform; often times, an artist’s feedback to another performer will be something you can use for your own material.
▪ Participating in a Q&A with the Broadway artist, answering industry and audition related questions.
▪ Audition experience performing in front of an audience with an accompanist.
▪ Being surrounded by like-minded performers who all share the same goals of wanting to strengthen their performance skills. Wallace was an original cast member of Alladin, starring as the Fortune Teller. Wallace works with students specifically on the show of Alladin in anticipation of DAMPA’s first musical that will take place in the Fall of 2016.

Marisha Wallace was born and raised in a small town in North Carolina. But the small town never held down her big city dreams. At the age of five she took the stage performing her first solo at an Easter service where she forgot the words. Despite her mishap, she knew she had to perform for the rest of her life. Marisha went on to obtain a BFA Musical Theatre and Theatre Education at East Carolina University. It was there that she found a love for acting and dancing. From there she went on to perform in shows around the country and the world.
She got her big break starring in the break out role of Ado Annie in Oklahoma, where she recieved a Drammy Award for Best Actress in a Musical. She then went on to be cast in the First National Tour of the Tony Award Winning Musical
The Book of Mormon. After a year on the road, she left the tour with a new opportunity in hand. She went back to NYC to fulfill her dream of being on Broadway. She opened the original broadway company of the five-time Tony nominated musical Disney’s Aladdin where she originated the role of the Fortune Teller.
