Musical Theater Through the Ages

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 highly interactive 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.).
