Musical Theatre - Week One

Fri 31 May 2019

Broadway beckons! 

Led by Alex Sutton and Steve Duguid with Mel Knott       

You love musical theatre? Can’t wait for the next big show to come to Curve? Well while you’re waiting, why not come and learn some of your favourite songs from Heathers, Dear Evan Hansen and Everybody’s Talking About Jamie, whilst making a musical of your own!

Working on songs from the these three shows, we will spend the week creating a short jukebox musical using all your singing, dance and acting skills.

You will learn and experience how we can take themes and ideas from the lyrics to tell our own story.

Who knows what will happen?  Who knows what it’ll be?  But it’s sure to be awesome!
