The Mitchell College Drama Society Invites Our Mitchell College Family To Spend...
An Afternoon With Meg
April 25, 12:30 PM - 2:00 PM
There is no charge for this event and Meg is hoping that it will be a chance for her to share her experiences as a Broadway actress and for her to interact with our students, faculty, and staff in an intimate setting. All are welcome to attend.
Meg Bussert is an American actress, singer and a university professor. She made her Broadway debut in the 1973. Her big break came in 1980 when she was cast in two revivals, The Music Man with Dick Van Dyke and Brigadoon with Martin Vidnovic, winning the Theatre World Award for her performance in both and a Tony Award nomination as Best Actress in a Musical for the latter. The following year Bussert appeared as Guinevere opposite Richard Harris as King Arthur in a national tour and Broadway revival of Camelot. The production was taped for broadcast by HBO and she was nominated for a CableACE Award.
Bussert's regional theatre credits include The Music Man, The Student Prince, H. M. S. Pinafore, South Pacific, Phantom, Damn Yankees, The Most Happy Fella, and Cabaret. She performed in concerts, recitals, and cabarets and with the Portland Opera. In 2010, she performed in The Sound of Music at the Ogunquit Playhouse.
Bussert presently is a full-time master teacher in Vocal Performance teaching Acting and Music Theatre Studies at New York University, in the Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development.
