Creating a Musical Role
“This program is a fantastic opportunity for growth and learning for performers of all levels of experience.''
This double-session course takes students through the entire process of rehearsing and performing a major musical. The course replicates a typical professional production experience, from learning the notes through taking the bow. Issues explored include vocal production, how to act a song, how to sing a scene, defining the arc of a character, and all other aspects of singing and acting a musical role. No experience is necessary, but major roles will be assigned by audition. Chorus roles will not require auditions, but prospective students will have to demonstrate that they can carry a tune. This year the course culminates in six public performances of the Tony-nominated Bonnie & Clyde, from the legendary Frank Wildhorn (Jekyll & Hyde). This Tony-nominated show is an electrifying story of love and crime, and the shocking consequences of both. Many roles for actors and singers of all types, at all levels of experience.
