Musical Mashups: The Villain's Story

Limited space available!!! Inspired by the most dastardly (and delightful) Musical Theatre villains, students will have great fun bringing those characters to life who are “rotten to the core”. They will learn to “sing a story” by exploring the various voices that can be produced by using the appropriate vocal technique. Students will connect the voice to posture, gesture, and full-body movement through improvisation to create vivid characters. They will “dance a story” by learning to use creative movement to bring their storytelling to life. Not all actors need to dance, but learning how to use a creative and flexible range of movement will help young actors feel more confident on stage, develop physically interesting characters, and add another skill to their actor’s toolbox. A final demonstration for family and friends will take place on the last day of class.
