Course Description:

Student's coursework focuses on, but is not limited to, basic acting, basic vocal performance, basic dance/movement, non-dance movement, and staging, which transfer readily to musical theatre literature.  Students will survey the current trends in musical theatre by studying representative literature.  Students will explore the unique staging and technical demands of musicals in contrast to non-musical plays.  Public performances may serve as a culmination of specific instructional goals.  Students may be required to attend and/or participate in rehearsals and performances outside the school day to support, extend, and assess learning in the classroom.
