This specialisation deals with the art of Music Theatre through Song, Classical Acting and devised ensemble work. Students in this program will be involved in staged scenes, character and movement classes, text work, chorus singing, acting techniques and ensemble coaching. The students will also be challenged to devise and research their own song material, make and source props, costumes, create soundscapes for voice and potentially fuller orchestration.
Participants will directly draw upon their knowledge and experience gained in their musicianship classes and sources such as jazz choir classes.
The course is particularly suited for mature high school and tertiary students, who want to explore the three-dimensional nature of performance for stage using the three disciplines of Movement, Music and Text.
