Musical Theater in America: An Interactive History
This fall, Note-worthy instructor Jay Maenhout will be offering an in-depth course on Musical Theater in America: An Interactive History. Through this course, students will become familiar with some of history's most important musical theater productions. Each 90-minute class is divided into two 45-minute sessions. During the first half, we will discuss the shows' plots, music, composers, actors, and the socio-political circumstances surrounding their premiers (including, for example, the Great Depression and Vietnam War). During the second half, students will have the opportunity to perform, as soloists or in groups, selections from any of the musicals discussed the previous week. Music will be available for students playing any instrument. These performances will be treated like master classes, where both the instructor and other students in the class will give helpful feedback to improve the performers' artistry. Musicals from Showboat to Hamilton will be covered and everything in between! Click here for Course Details.
Please be advised that mature topics will be discussed as pertinent to the shows. This class is recommended for ages 12+.
The course will be held Mondays 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm from September 17 through December 17, 2018 (no class on December 3).
Cost: $425 for the entire session. A light snack will be served.
