Alda Coming to Wisconsin to Help Train Actors

1/24/12 – Alan Alda will help train aspiring actors in southeast Wisconsin in 2013. The former “MASH” star will be the master teacher in next July’s fellowship program at Ten Chimneys at Genesee Depot in Waukesha County. Ten Chimneys is the historic estate of theater legends Alfred Lunt and Lynn Fontanne. The Ten Chimneys Foundation says Alda will focus on spontaneity during his week-long program. Broadway star Joel Grey will be this year’s master teacher in July. Ten Chimneys is located in the town where Lunt was born. He died in 1977, and Fontanne died in 1983.
