There are many ways to tell stories on the stage and music theatre is one of the most traditional. To make music theatre you don’t have to be a singer, dancer or a musician, just an actor, a storyteller that is prepared to learn and be courageous.
Taking popular music of the 1970’ and 80’s you will create a new piece of music theatre that tells the stories of social protest and celebrating community. Through a series of evening and full day workshops you will share your own stories, develop skills in ensemble singing and movement to create a unique piece of music theatre to perform to an audience in December.
This course will be led by guest tutors, Peter Woollard, Assistant Musical Director of Wicked, the London and Broadway musical sensation, and Sean Graham, dancer and choreographer of Foreign Bodies Orchestra, alongside direction from Terry O’Leary and Vicky Moran.
