Writing the Ten Minute Musical (Online)    







Sep 19 - Nov 7
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 open-ended prompts.  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 2021.

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.
