This workshop is designed for any teacher engaged in delivering musical theatre and performance programs in their school.
Working with a performing arts education expert, this workshop will cover the essential elements of creating musical theatre in a school setting including effective and efficient audition strategies, how to approach direction, musical direction and choreography, how to use a large cast in a meaningful way, and how to ensure you have the support you need to deliver the project.
The workshop will also explore how you as a teacher/director could challenge young actors to extend what they do within rehearsals in order to feel confident to take theatrical risks to enhance their performance.
Covid 19 has taught us many things, including how to ‘pivot’ and use our creativity in new ways. Unable to access performances in the same way; practitioners all over the world adapted to various alternate forms of presentation including online and streaming.
This panel will look at the changing possibilities in how to present the school musical and will include a representative from one of the chief copyright agencies that license musicals in Australia as well as Examinations Board; the Australian Music Examinations Board (AMEB) to discuss their easily accessible curriculum for use in schools.
