Acting Through Songs

Registration Closed

Adults

Adult Class

Sundays, March-April


When you perform in a musical, much of your performance is dictated by the work of the lyricist and composer. They give you notes, language, and rhythm. With all this guidance it can be difficult to remember that you do not disappear when you sing during a show! The guide given to you by the artists who created the songs are only effective when the performer shines through and the words and emotions of the song are a critical part of the character’s journey. In this class, students will choose a song to perform and will be guided through the process of learning how to make an active switch between dialogue and singing, how to keep playing action during songs, and how to analyze lyrics and music to inspire a performance.
