The Lake County High School Performing Arts Department is thrilled to announce that Tony Award Nominee and Broadway Veteran Christiane Noll will be coming to work with our performing arts students! Christiane is currently opening the new National tour of DEAR EVAN HANSEN in Denver, Colorado. Four High School students have been selected to work with her on singing, acting, and role interpretation in a masterclass setting. After the time slots all performing arts students will have a Q/A with her about the business of musical theatre, opera, and performing.
The New York born, New Jersey raised actress starred on Broadway in the Kennedy Center Revival of RAGTIME, receiving TONY and Drama Desk Award nominations and winning a Helen Hayes Award for her portrayal of Mother.

Ms. Noll received her second Drama Desk nomination for her work in CHAPLIN. She has been seen perennially as Sister Margaretta in NBC’s THE SOUND OF MUSIC LIVE with Carrie Underwood. She supplied the singing-voice of Anna in the Warner Brothers animated feature THE KING AND I. She has enjoyed starring in Broadway productions of ELF (at Madison Square Garden), IT AIN’T NOTHIN’ BUT THE BLUES and on tour in URINETOWN (Ovation Award), THE MAMBO KINGS, GREASE!

Scott Carroll says, “I am so thankful to have this widespread community of professional friends and colleagues who are willing to come work with our performing arts students. Christiane is a delightful person and we all are in for a rare treat. Come support these talented students as they sing for one of Broadway’s finest.”
This masterclass is open to the public and will begin at 10:30AM on Monday, October 1st. The class is slated to run until 12:00PM in the Lake County High School Performing Arts Center. Please note there will be no late seating as it is distracting to these young performers.
