Description

This NEW group will be led by professional live musical theater actor, Jacob Hoffman, and staff member Molly Finucane. 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!”

Sessions are on Fridays, August 5, 12, 19, and 26 from 5:00-6:00 pm.
