THEA 315 - Musical Theater Performance

Description
In this course, designed for the novice performer as well as the advanced actor or singer, we focus on introducing students to the art of acting a song. We examine the literary and musical elements of scripts to reveal character and narrative, only here we do this while singing. Performers prepare and present musical selections from the Broadway canon, exploring how the elements of healthy singing (including breath control, phrasing, and placement) help convey character and story. Through freeing our musical voices to best express persona and narrative, we we examine the intersection of singing, acting, and audience connection. All experience levels welcome. A ticket fee, not to exceed $50, is associated with this course.
