Description
This is the third in a series of four Musical Theatre Studio courses in which students interpret increasingly complex musical theatre texts using music, dance, and acting. Students will continue to apply the technical skills they learned in their previous courses as they rehearse and perform ensemble musical numbers involving solos, supporting characters, ensemble dance, and group vocals. Instructors will select the material, cast the scenes, and direct student performers, helping them to gather textual information, diagram the shape of the song, and interpret the musical information provided by the composer and lyricist, with the goal of moving an audience. The fruit of this work will have at least one if not two presentations in the Performance Workshop.
