Musical Theater Appreciation – Zoom


Out of stock



This group will be led by professional live musical theater actor, Jacob Hoffman, and a staff member. Jacob says, “Each class, we will spend time celebrating and learning more about America’s greatest invention: Musical Theater. Participants will explore musicals and their connection to other forms of entertainment.  How does The Wizard of Oz influence its modern sibling, The Wiz? How do modern movie musicals borrow from their live counterparts (ie Hairspray live on Broadway vs. the many movie iterations of Hairspray)? We will review musical theater from its infancy in the 1940s all the way to today’s hits with fun trivia, guest appearances, and scene study sprinkled in along the way.  Writing exercises, small group sharing, in-session viewings, and zoom sing-a-longs will make for a time you won’t soon forget!”

The fee covers 9 sessions. Sessions are on Fridays from 7:15 -8:15 pm, August 4, 11, 18, 25, September 1, 8, 22, and 29 and October 6.

Beginning August 4, the group will meet at 7:15 to 8:15.

Please note that we will NOT meet on September 15. 

Minimum enrollment: 7
