Students will work on three songs that explore different vocal techniques and practices in Musical Theatre. We will begin with how to select singing material, learn of the various places to find sheet music, and work on creating and presenting 32-bar cuts. Exploring all Broadway styles ranging from Golden Age to contemporary musical theater and pop music students will perform using piano tracks and work towards bringing their storytelling, musicianship, and personality into their songs. Students will also have the opportunity to participate in breakout Zoom sessions studying music theory, piano skills, and songwriting and composing to learn ways to broaden their understanding of music and performance.

LUNCH BREAK

 

ACTING  1:15 PM – 2:30 PM  Teacher: Christopher Scott

It’s time to hone your acting skills. Using monologues, and scene work students will explore the use of imaginary circumstances, and examine character, relationship, objectives and obstacles. Classes will begin with exercises for relaxation, concentration, and sensitivity to other actors. Techniques for moment to moment expression will also be explored. The focus will be presentation of short plays and/or scenes.

 

PLAYWRITING  2:45 PM – 4:00 PM  Teacher: Christopher Scott

There’s a lot going on in today’s world and you have a lot to say about it. A play can be staged anywhere, from an empty space surrounded by folding chairs to a plush Broadway house. Learn about the craft of playwriting through the study of the basic elements of drama (action, character, conflict, dialogue). A series of 10-minute plays will be created for one or two actors which include songs from the popular canon (musical theatre, pop, R&B, Rap, classical, etc.) with rewritten lyrics. The goal is to read the plays with an invited audience at the conclusion of the class live via the Zoom platform.
