Samford University’s Randall Richardson, professor of voice and coordinator of performance studies, and Mark Castle, assistant professor of theatre, presented Once More From the Top: God, I Hope I Get It as a master class at the Southeastern Regional Theatre Conference March 2-6 in Atlanta, Ga.

The master classes provide students with an opportunity to perform a package, which consists of a 90-second monologue and sometimes part of a song. Richardson and Castle give the students instruction and helpful hints.

"I love seeing the students perform the packages and helping them and seeing them progress,” Richardson said.

Castle has taught at Samford since 2005, and Richardson joined the School of the Arts faculty in 1980.
