She believes that what you choose to sing tells people who you are, and is expert at suggesting the best kind of material to showcase each student and make them shine.

Note: Students are expected to prepare two (2) contrasting songs (full songs or 16-bar cut ) to show in class with prerecorded tracks to sing to.

BIOEmily Skinner has unequivocally established herself as one of Broadway‘s most engaging and versatile performers.

Emily was last seen on Broadway in the 2019 season in THE CHER SHOW. In the fall 2017 Broadway season, she had the honor of being directed by Hal Prince in his last show PRINCE OF BROADWAY at Manhattan Theatre Club and she was nominated for an Outer Critics Circle Award for her performance. She was also seen that same year Off-Broadway in Transport Group’s much lauded production of PICNIC, where she was nominated for a Drama Desk Award for her performance as Rosemary.

Previous to that, she appeared as The Witch in INTO THE WOODS at Houston’s Theatre Under The Stars and as Phyllis in FOLLIES at The Repertory Theatre of St Louis, garnering rave reviews for both performances.

Another recent highlight came when Dame Julie Andrews selected Emily to star in the musical based on her children’s book THE GREAT AMERICAN MUSICAL, which premiered at Godspeed’s Norma Terris Theatre.

She appeared previously on Broadway starring in the acclaimed musical BILLY ELLIOT. Handpicked by Oscar-winning director Stephen Daldry, she had the honor of being the very first American selected to play the role of Billy’s dance teacher, Mrs. Wilkinson. She received a Broadway World Award for her performance.

Emily was nominated for a Tony Award (along with Alice Ripley) and received a Drama League Award for her performance as Daisy Hilton in the brilliant but short-lived SIDE SHOW.

Her other original Broadway credits include JEKYLL & HYDE, JAMES JOYCE’S THE DEAD (opposite Christopher Walken), THE FULL MONTY, DINNER AT EIGHT (Outer Critics Circle Nomination), A CHRISTMAS CAROL, as well as The Actors Fund productions of THE BEST LITTLE WHOREHOUSE IN TEXAS, and DREAMGIRLS.

She has had the pleasure of singing many times at Carnegie Hall with The New York Pops, and appeared there as well in the New York debut of Richard Thomas’ infamous JERRY SPRINGER THE OPERA (with Harvey Keitel).

As a soloist, she guested with the Pittsburgh Symphony, Virginia Symphony, Dallas Symphony, and the Jerusalem Symphony Orchestra. Emily has also headlined New York engagements at Merkin Hall, Avery Fisher Hall, Town Hall, Joe’s Pub at the Public Theatre, Birdland, 54 Below, Lincoln Center’s American Songbook Series, Feinstein’s at the Regency, as well as her solo concert act BROADWAY HER WAY at various performing arts centers and cabaret venues around the country.

Off-Broadway, Emily performed in the acclaimed City Center Encores! revivals of NO STRINGS, PARDON MY ENGLISH, A TREE GROWS IN BROOKLYN, and FIORELLO, as well as in various productions and workshops at Manhattan Theatre Club, WPA Theatre, The Transport Group, Paramount Theater at Madison Square Gardens, York Theatre, Playwrights Horizons and the Roundabout Theatre.

Regionally, she appeared in numerous leading roles at The Kennedy Center, Signature Theatre, Long Wharf Theatre, Old Globe Theatre, Ford’s Theatre, McCarter Theatre, Baltimore CenterStage, St. Louis MUNY, American Conservatory Theatre, Guthrie Theatre, Goodspeed, Bucks County Playhouse, Lyric Theater of Oklahoma, Virginia Rep and elsewhere…
