MUSICAL THEATRE 15/25/35 (5 credits)

This 5 credit course aims to provide an interactive environment for students who are interested in singing, dancing, and acting as part of an ensemble, and able to commit to the rehearsal process necessary to put on a full-scale musical production. Students develop vocal and physical skills to create characters on stage, and learn choreography specific to the style and era of the particular production. In addition, students will have the opportunity to work with theatre professionals in the area of voice, dance, movement for actors, and technical theatre. Students enrolled in this course will be part of the school’s musical theatre production and will rehearse after school and on occasional Saturdays and put up the show at The Arden Theatre for two matinees and two evening performances. 


The dynamic for this program is focusing on and polishing skills and talents that lie in the area of set design, set construction, crew management, lighting design and operation, sound design and operation and special effects building. Credits in Tech Theatre can be obtained through involvement in the Musical Production or the Dramatic Production.
