Whether you’re brand new to musical theatre or you’ve been around it for a while, this is the perfect class to dive into it headfirst! This fine arts elective tracks the history of musical theatre by starting with its precursors, comic and ballad operas, and ending with modern-day musicals such as Hamilton and SpongeBob SquarePants: The Broadway Musical. Students will learn how the different musical ages progressed while also learning some musical theatre literature. It’s fun for every student.
This course is project-based and offers two different options for project assignments: performance and production. Each project, students can choose to do the performance option (singing, acting, dancing, etc.) or the production option (costume design, scenic design, lighting design, etc.).

Paulina Guerra is a homeschool graduate from Houston, Texas, and she developed a love for music at a young age. Participating in musicals throughout high school, she decided to pursue a career in vocal performance. She earned a Bachelor of Arts in Music with a concentration in vocal performance and a minor in theatre at Louisiana Tech University. Paulina received her Master of Music at the University of Mobile with cognates in both vocal pedagogy and theater.
While she has really enjoyed every performance opportunity from ensemble to lead roles, two that she especially loved were Rita in Lucky Stiff (opera workshop), Woman #2 in Six Women with Braindeath, Ms. Todd in The Old Maid and the Thief, and the Monitoress in Suor Angelica. Paulina has also competed at the Kennedy Center American College Theater Festival Region VI (2019) portraying Victoria in The Groundling.
