Writing the Ten Minute Musical (Online)    







May 02 - Jun 13
10:00am - 1:00pm 

Instructors: Cheri Coons & J. Sebastian Fabal

Online! Learn advanced musical theatre storytelling techniques by creating original work in this compact, ten minute form. Writers and/or writing teams will create a complete 10 minute musical during this course. You’ll share work in class every week, culminating in a workshop with actors and a director in the final class sessions. (Pending social distancing restrictions, the final class presentation may take place online, with a "rain date" in the future for an additional live-and-in-person showcase.) Musicals created in this course are also eligible for submission for consideration for Chicago Dramatists' Showcase of Ten Minute Musicals, presented in partnership with Underscore Theatre Company during the Chicago Music Theatre Festival.

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