The performance of a musical theatre work requires the collaborative efforts of the entire musical theatre cast. Students learn about the nature of musical theatre and the interconnected roles and responsibilities that theatre, music and dance play within a show. They examine the requirements for leadership, teamwork, commitment and backstage and front-of -house communication protocol. They learn the synthesis of content and context from multiple visual and performing arts disciplines by connecting dance, music and theatre skills. Through participation and in the rehearsal and performance process, students learn the skills and attitudes necessary to perform a musical theatre production, including valuable personal and interpersonal skills that students can apply in a broader social and career context. Musical Theatre students are ultimately responsible for performing a show at the end of the semester.
