Musical Theatre in English, Ages 13+
When the emotion becomes to strong to express in mere words, you sing; When it is too strong too express though song, you dance.
Musical Theatre is a 4 month English Language course on acting, singing and dancing in a Musical. The course will end with a performance consisting of fragments from a well-known piece of Musical Theatre.
The staging of the show will be minimalistic, relying predominantly on the expressive means of the performers and foregoing some of the flashiness usually associated with Musical in favor of a more in depth approach to performing and conveying emotion through words, music and dance.
Who is this course for?
Young performers, aged 13 to 19, enrolled in High School at the time of taking the class.
No previous acting or singing experience is required, but previous experience performing in front of an audience will be taken into account.
Good command of the English language is necessary as the class will be taught entirely in English.
The audition will take place on the 23rd of February, from 2:30-4:30 PM.
In order to be selected to take part in this course, you will need to prepare an A Capella version of a song of your choice, to present in front of an audience made up of your course teachers and other students. Make sure you choose a song that has meaning to you.
The audition will also consist of a series of Rhythm, Movement and Acting exercises coordinated by class teachers in all of the three sections: Acting, Singing and Dancing.
We’re NOT looking for perfect voices or exprienced actors, what we’re interested in is your personal take on the song and the way in which you convey what it means to you. You’re enrolling in this class to train your voice and your acting, the only thing we want to see in the audition is your personality.
THE AUDITION IS FREE.
Throughout the course you will be training in the three areas of Musical Performance: Acting, Singing & Voice training, Dance. Treat this course as an introduction to all three of the above.
