Students in Musical Theatre 9/10 classes will work with a teaching team of three specialists in the areas of voice, dance, and drama. The course is designed to offer opportunities to hone skills in the musical theatre disciplines (singing, dancing, acting), engage in the rehearsal process, and provide performance opportunities for the classes. Other topics include preparation of an audition piece, creation of a performance resume, theatre etiquette and terminology, character development, musical theory, theatre history, fitness & conditioning, and team building. Interested students must be responsible & self-disciplined and commit to the all class performance dates, which include the semester end Fine Arts Showcase in January. Grade 9 and 10 students enrolled in this course may also audition to be part of the ensemble for the Mainstage Musical Theatre production which runs outside the timetable (see below).
