Scenes is a one-credit course that meets at 3:30 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays. Students collaborate on a variety of scenes from “legit” and contemporary musicals, culminating in a performance on April 9.
A successful audition is a prerequisite for enrolling in the course.
Choreographers are also needed.
To audition: Please prepare two contrasting 16-32 bar selections from the music theatre repertoire. Selections must have piano accompaniment. Be sure sheet music is complete and clearly marked for the pianist. A pianist will be provided.
Course Description: Music Theatre Scenes (MUEN 1090, 3090) will include the study and performance of scenes taken from music theater, opera and operetta. The course is open by audition to all members of the university community.
