Born and raised in a suburb west of Chicago, now living in Madison, Wisconsin, Gail Becker has a solid and perpetuating entertainment career in the Midwest. She has been a Cabaret Singer and Actress for over 25 years, and also enjoys musical directing and conducting shows. Her latest endeavor is not only being a founder, but assuming the position of Assistant Artistic Director and Director of Education for Capital City Theatre, Madison's newest professional Equity musical theatre. Additionaly, Gail sustains a busy private vocal coaching studio, and works independently as a Musical Theatre/Voice instructor. Currently she is also the Director of the Tommy Performance Ensemble at Overture Center. Recent companies Gail has worked with include: Madison Country Day School, Madison Creative Arts Program, Children's Theatre of Madison, Four Seasons Theatre, Oregon Straw Hat Players, and Stoughton Village players.
She feels it is important to constantly keep studying and perfecting her craft. Some organizations she belongs to are Wisconsin Chamber Choir, Madison Opera Chorus, Apollo Chorus of Chicago, and Prohibition Orchestra of Chicago. Recently adding Voice-Over Artist to the mix, she hopes to someday narrate books. Gail received a Bachelor degree in Fine Arts from Miami University in Oxford, Ohio.
I have been instructing all ages and levels since 1997, and it is my passion to share my knowledge of singing, music, acting, auditioning, and performance techniques to those seeking a career in musical theatre. As a theatre major at Miami University, I responded best to instructors who were also working, professional singers and actors. My goal now is to fill that same role with my students by translating not only my education but my life lessons and experience into effective tools and skills for aspiring performers.
