Leslie Uggams performs in concert, conducts master classes at Wright State this week


Tony and Emmy Award-winning actress and singer Leslie Uggams will share her insights and talents with students of the Wright State University Musical Theatre Program today and tomorrow, January 22-23 in Dayton, Ohio. Uggams will become the first major visiting artist to conduct master classes and perform as a guest of the school’s new Musical Theatre Initiative.

“Leslie Uggams represents so much of the history of popular entertainment in the last half of the 20th century and into the 21st,” says Joe Deer, distinguished professor of musical theatre and director of the Musical Theatre Initiative at Wright State. “Exposing students and faculty to an artist like Ms. Uggams provides inspiration to complement the rigors and discipline of training. It’s an infusion of energy for all of us.”
