PROFESSIONAL ACTRESS AND ABSEGAMI ALUMNUS HOLDS WORKSHOP FOR DISTRICT THEATRE STUDENTS

Professional actress and Absegami High School 2012 graduate Morgan Kirner returned
to her alma mater to hold a musical theatre workshop as part of the Absegami One
Good Adult program for the theatre students of Absegami High School, Oakcrest High
School and Galloway Township Middle School. Kirner played leading roles in the
productions at Absegami High School and won the award for Outstanding Leading
Actress in a Musical in the state of New Jersey at the Rising Star Awards held by the
Paper Mill Playhouse. She is a graduate of the Boston Conservatory of the Arts and is
an Equity actress who has appeared in many professional productions across the
country, including her current role as Ermegarde in the national tour of Hello, Dolly!
Focusing on the storytelling aspect of interpreting a song in musical theater, Kirner
coached and critiqued students who sang musical theater pieces for the workshop
attendees. At the end of the workshop, Kirner then sang a song of her own for the
group, who were dazzled by her brilliance as a performer.
“From the moment I met Morgan, I knew she would be a professional performer.” said
Absegami Drama Director Chip Garrison. “Not only is she amazingly talented but she
works harder on her craft than anyone I know. But what was so wonderful tonight was
to see her coaching other students; she is a natural teacher and really connected with
each student she coached.”
