Musical Theatre Class

Creativity blossoms in this environment! This class allows students to develop their talents as singers, dancers, and actors through its equal focus on each of these three important disciplines of musical theatre. One of the best ways to learn is by doing, and in this class the emphasis is on the excitement of combining all these elements to create excerpts from Broadway style shows. The class is divided into three half hour segments. The acting portion of the class uses drama games, improvisation, and scene work to prepare students for working with scripted material. In vocal classes, students learn some basic music theory, and technique, and the group dynamic provides the opportunity to work on harmonies and choral music as well. During the dance segment, we focus on choreography, and students will learn movement for the stage as well as some jazz style basics as we put the show together. During casting, students are each given a part that highlights their strengths. Performances take place in class in late October/early November, and at the Christmas show for Term I, with a second in class performance before March Break, and Term II culminating with the final year end show in June. Taught by Linette DohertySarah O’Brecht, and Erynn Brook.
