Original "Wicked" performer teaches local acting workshop
UTICA, N.Y. (WKTV) - An original cast member of the broadway hit "Wicked" was in Utica Monday showing kids some tricks to the trade. Ben Cameron who was part of the show's first Broadway performance visited the Jewish Community center in Utica to teach kids original choreography from the show, scene work, and auditioning techniques.
His hope was to show the aspiring actors and actresses that they too can make it to Broadway.
"I grew up in Utah of all places and New York and Broadway seemed like such a dream, so far away and if I had someone like myself maybe come in and say here I am I did this you can do this, I would've just jumped at it," said Ben Cameron.
The workshop was part of "A Class Act" productions which provides traveling workshops for young, up and coming actors.
