SUESS' HOW THE GRINCH STOLE CHRISTMAS, ELF, SCHOOL OF ROCK, MATILDA and in almost every regional theatre in the country!
His college preparatory students have been accepted to almost every musical theatre program in the country and Kurt has been on the forefront of the continued demands of navigating students through the college audition experience.
Kurt's expert knowledge of musical theatre song repertoire has made him a sought-after consultant for both students and professional actors looking to build their audition books.
As an educator he has taught tap, jazz, musical theatre, voice and song coaching through Front & Center Performing Arts in Springfield, NJ in addition to many private clients. Through his work as a freelance coach in all of these disciplines, he found his love and passion for teaching kids of all ages the skill of a successful audition. This heart centered process involves a creative, nurturing and solid audition technique that is both effective and fun. His vast experience as an actor means he has had thousands of auditions over his twenty-year professional career. Kurt's auditions have resulted in booking the role of Don Kerr in the Broadway revival of A CHORUS LINE, the first national tour of the revival of 42ND STREET,, and the St. Paul Company of Irving Berlin’s WHITE CHRISTMAS. He has been seen Off-Broadway in the Jone’s and Schmidt musical ROADSIDE at the York Theatre Company, ALL IS LOVE at the New York Musical Theatre Festival as well as performing with the Rockette’s in the Radio City City Christmas Spectacular. Kurt has been seen at most of the country’s top regional theatres including the Arena Stage and Ford’s Theatre in Washington DC, Goodspeed Opera House, North Shore Music Theatre, Geva Theatre, Cape Playhouse, Ogunquit Playhouse, Sacramento Music Circus and Houston’s Theatre Under The Stars. He directed and choreographed PRINCESS DIANA, The Musical at the Spoletto Festival in Charleston, SC and the musical PISTACHIO, THE BROOKLYN GIRL MADE FROM TRASH for the Brooklyn Arts Council. Choreography credits include EVITA, DAUGHTER OF THE REGIMENT and LA BELLE HELENE at Opera North, Hanover, NH and Off-Broadway's EVERYONE'S CAROL. In addition, Kurt performed, taught and choreographed for the Transcendence Theatre Company, Sonoma, CA in FLY ME TO THE MOON, FANTASTICAL FAMILY NIGHT and their Kids Fun Camp. Kurt has also been a casting associate for two season’s at the Cape Playhouse. This job gave him the privilege of working on the "other side" of the audition table and seeing hundreds of actors audition in New York. Marrying all of this professional experience together resulted in the desire to help children understand and develop the fundamentals of auditioning at an early age. It's also a blast!
Upcoming directing and choreography projects include A CHORUS LINE at Northwestern University, THE TALES OF HOFFMAN at Opera North, NH and THE HUNCHBACK OF NOTRE DAME at the Carnegie in Cincinnati, OH.
