Principal Approved Final
Students should take M/J Musical Theatre 1 before Level 2
M/J Musical Theatre 1 is recommended
Student's coursework focuses on, but is not limited to, acting, vocal performance, dance/movement, and staging, which transfer readily to musical theatre literature. Students will survey the evolution of music in theatre from ancient Greece to modern Broadway through a humanities approach and with representative, age appropriate literature. They will learn to analyze the structures, stories and settings of musical theatre exemplars to understand how those components serve the story. 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 of the school day to support, extend, and assess learning in the classroom.
