Emma Brock Takes on Michael Scott
Posted Monday, May 31st 2021 by Meredith Davis
Hey singers! Check out Justin Stoney’s student Emma Brock in the Off-Broadway production of The Office: A Musical Parody. This slapstick song and dance takes the antics of the beloved show to a whole new level.
Comedy gold is struck by bringing together the powerhouse vocals and timing of Emma Brock to this intimate theatrical setting. The audience is brought right into the throws and cubicles of Dunder Mifflin’s most admired characters.
New York Vocal Coaching has been a proud supporter of Miss Brock on her theatrical journey. With such a demanding role, Miss Brock has taken great lengths to sharpen her vocal comedy skills. Eight shows a week of vocal antics can take a tole. Therefore, breath support and projection are key! This helps to ensure that sound reaches all members of the audience without straining the performer's instrument. Other vocal tools like proper placement can help to control a performer's volume of singing, shouting and laughter while keeping both strength and tone in check. It is with the proper vocal technique studied at NYVC that Miss Brock has kept her vocal health in tact. And all while still serving the audience her unique brand of high brow hilarity!
This particular show is also a stand out as it is the first theatrical production to return to in person performances in the New York City area. After a year that has dimmed even the bright lights of Broadway, this is quite an achievement. Under the leadership of Miss Brock, this little comedy and its cast charges into a new dawn.
