Stage & the City’s Musical Theatre Beginners classes are designed for those passionate about performing in a professional, fun, friendly and supportive class atmosphere. Working alongside industry professionals, you will learn medleys from the most memorable musicals such as Les Miserable, Jersey Boys, Chicago, Mamma Mia & Wicked to name but a few.
You will have the chance to audition for solo parts, learn dance and movement to your vocals and create amazing storytelling performances which will then give you the option to perform in one of our many up and coming showcases. You don’t have to be the best singer, dancer or actor, but if you have charisma, a love for musical theatre and of course a love of performing, then this is the class for you.
This Musical Theatre Beginners class is designed for adults who either have some experience in musical theatre or are beginners but are willing to get stuck in for one and a half hours a week. For those with no previous experience who cannot commit to one and a half hours a week, we suggest you do the Introduction to Musical Theatre course, (which is only one hour long) before this one. However, if you are unable to make Tuesday evenings for the Beginners please get in touch as we may be able to bring you up to speed with a master class. Please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
During this course, you will learn to sing in 3 part harmony while dancing and acting at the same time. There will also be lots of opportunities to improve your musicality while singing in the group and stepping into solos if you so wish.
All Musical Theatre students will have the opportunity to perform in Stage & the City’s Charity Showcase Extravaganza taking place on Saturday 30th March at the Stratford Arts Theatre, (although this is an amazing opportunity it is not compulsory).
