This intensive is themed around Carole King's message that one small voice "speaking out in honesty can change the world," meant to polish the talents of blossoming female musical artists. This precedes the National Broadway tour of Beautiful about King's career, which opens at Benjamin & Marion Schuster Performing Arts Center, and runs May 22 through May 27. Tickets for the musical are on sale now.
