Musical Theater Day

The Musical Theatre Workshop is an opportunity for junior high and high school students of all levels of experience to enjoy workshop activities in acting, vocal music and dance, culminating in an informal evening showcase at 7:00pm the same day, that is free for parents and friends of participants.

Taught by Concordia University faculty, working with an accompanist, students will be taken through a variety of exercises, and then be taught a musical theatre number (dance and vocal music), and an ensemble acting scene. Advanced students may bring a musical theatre solo (please provide sheet music in the correct key), or an acting monologue (please bring a copy of the text), which we will help polish, and then will be eligible for performance in the showcase.

Date: Saturday, January 27, 2018
Time: 9:30 AM - 8:00 PM
