ACT of Connecticut offers individual vocal instruction and performance coaching. 

All lessons are $90 per 45 minutes.

Please note we do not generally recommend private voice lessons for students younger than ten years old.

We suggest the ACT of CT Youth Choir for these younger students.  

ACT of CT is pleased to offer voice and performance coaching lessons with veteran Broadway performer, Colleen Fitzpatrick.  Lessons are available on an on-going basis and can be scheduled directly with Colleen.

We are also able to refer students to a voice teacher in New York City; please reach out to education@actofct.org for more information.

Colleen Fitzpatrick (Performance Coach) is a 33-year Broadway veteran actor and singer who has appeared in over 15 shows, including the original companies of CATS, PASSION, INTO THE WOODS, and LESTAT for Elton John and Bernie Taupin. She has appeared in multiple revivals, such as 110 IN THE SHADE with Audra McDonald, BYE BYE BIRDIE with John Stamos, and she also starred as Donna in the Broadway National Tour of MAMMA MIA! Colleen is considered a “go-to girl” for Stephen Sondheim, with over 9 of his shows to her credit, including the recent revival of FOLLIES starring Bernadette Peters. Colleen has also worked at the Delacorte Theater in Central Park in MOTHER COURAGE AND HER CHILDREN, starring Meryl Streep and Kevin Kline. She appeared again at the Public in ROAD SHOW. She also had the privilege of standing by for both Patti Lupone and Audra McDonald in PBS-TV’s production of Stephen Sondheim’s PASSION. Colleen has acted in 2 different opera productions at the Metropolitan Opera, has 4 City Center Encores! shows to her credit, and has appeared in myriad tours, concerts, TV shows, and movies. On coaching: Colleen has never wavered from her commitment to her craft. Her latest journey is her teaching initiative that began a decade ago, designed to give back to upcoming generations. “I believe we must give back what we know to those who follow.”

“There is a reason why Colleen Fitzpatrick has appeared in over 15 Broadway shows and was Stephen Sondheim’s “go-to girl” for many of his shows. Simply put, she is a true Broadway diva! Colleen has a non-traditional approach to singing and voice training, which young actors find very useful. Her nurturing and enthusiastic demeanor is intoxicating, and she truly loves working with theater students - passing on her knowledge to them. It is exciting to have someone with Colleen’s experience and expertise work with our ACT students!”

Daniel C. Levine, ACT of CT’s Artistic Director
