Musical Theater in America: An Interactive History
This Spring, 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. 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). 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!
Please be advised that mature topics will be discussed as pertinent to the shows. This class is recommended for ages 12+.
Dates and time: February 10, March 3, and April 7 from 6-7 PM.
