intro to musical theater
Date: May 7, 2013
I've been asked to create a middle school elective as an intro musical theater. I'm looking at doing a little history of musical theater and showing some classic musicals to discuss the elements that create a successful musical. I'd also like to have the kids act and sing some short scenes and, if time, write their own musical theater scenes. Do you have any suggestions for textbooks for the students or resources for me? I already have the PBS Broadway: An American Musical DVDs, CDs and book as well as numerous DVDs of various musicals. Thanks!
