10:00am - 1:00pm
Instructor: Cheryl Coons
Led by award-winning musical theatre writer Cheryl Coons, “Musical Theatre: the Secret Life of the American Musical,” guides students through the rich inner workings of the American Musical. Dedicated to providing a safe space, where students are encouraged to grow, take risks, and sow the seeds of their musical talents, students learn the craftsmanship necessary to write a full-fledged piece of their own. By studying the greats—from Gypsy, to Dear Evan Hansen, to Hamilton—students gain insight into the fundamentals of the form, and use this as a bedrock to find and foster their own unique theatrical voices. This is then coupled with ample opportunities for writers to share work-in-process, helping students discover how to fashion music and lyrics that pierce right to the heart of any audience.
