Writing the Ten Minute Musical     







Oct 05 - Nov 09
10:00am - 1:00pm 

Instructors: Cheri Coons & J. Sebastian Fabal

Learn advanced musical theatre storytelling techniques by creating original work in this compact, ten minute form. Writers and/or writing teams will create a 10 minute musical inspired by a story, object, idea, or experience at the Chicago History Museum. You’ll share work in class every week, culminating in a workshop with actors and a director in the final class sessions.

In addition, 10 Minute Musicals from this class will be eligible for a very special opportunity: readings of 6 finalist musicals will be showcased in the Chicago Musical Theatre Festival, produced by Underscore Theatre Company in January 2020.

Sign up with your collaborator and pay a single course fee, or sign up as an individual writer or composer and pair with other writers in the class to create work.
