Sheri Sanders - Actress, Author
As a musical theatre actress insisting on her own diversity, and pliability, Sheri has had profound success performing roles from channelling the late Kitty Genovese in The Screams Of Kitty Genovese (NYMF), to playing Little Becky Two Shoes on the National Tour of Urinetown to everything in between (see her resume!). Never abandoning her love for the radio, Sheri tapped into the ever changing state of Musical Theatre, realized that her greatest love was finding its way onto the Broadway stage, film and television, and now pioneers as the only person to bridge those gaps. Sheri piloted her masterclass, ROCK THE AUDITION, at Pace University, and since then has taught with The Tepper Semester at Syracuse University,The Conservatory at Papermill Playhouse, Oklahoma City University, University of Oklahoma, San Diego State University, Millikin University, Jersey City University, Rider College, Penn State, Steinhardt, Boston Conservatory, Emerson, Berklee School Of Music, New York Film Academy, with Making It On Broadway, Capes Coaching, Actors Connection, TVI, School Of Rock, Perry-Mansfield, and is a Rock Musical Repertoire Coach and private audition coach in NYC. Backstage paid a visit to her rock class, wrote an article about her leading a revolution, and the next thing you know, Sheri was asked to create the pilot episode of the reality television show MY TIME on The Oprah Winfrey Network(OWN). Sheri was then immediately invited by Hal Leonard books to be the first person to ever write a book on auditioning for rock musicals. In the history of the world. Sheri's students have been found in The Broadway, touring companies, and regional productions of Rock Of Ages, Wonderland, Sister Act, Mamma Mia!, Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson, American Idiot, Spring Awakening, Wicked, The Wedding Singer, Hairspray, Legally Blonde, Rent, Shout, Fat Camp, Cyndi Lauper's Kinki Boots, Sting's The Last Ship, and Regina Spektor's Beauty. When Sheri is not on her worldwide tour to promote her book, and teach teachers and their students how to holistically embody the essence of the rock musical they are auditioning for, she's back home in NYC acting.
