A Broadway star returns to his alma mater to share what he’s learned with students.

Alumnus Julian Decker graduated from Villa Maria Academy in 2010. Decker has been seen in Sunset Boulevard on Broadway, Les Miserables, Disney’s Hunchback of Notre Dame and more. Decker is in Erie tonight to host a Broadway Masterclass for all Cathedral Prep and Villa Maria Academy students to teach them how to prepare for auditions, singing techniques and more.

“It’s so important for those that have achieved, gone to college for this and achieved success… to come back and share that. Otherwise, we are not furthering the future stars of tomorrow,” said Decker.
