MUSICAL THEATRE

Guidance notes

 

Musical theatre is a form of theatrical performance that combines songs, spoken dialogue, acting, and dance. The story and emotional content of a musical – humour, pathos, love, anger – are communicated through the words, music, movement and technical aspects of the entertainment as an integrated whole.

 

This class combines all three disciplines of our festival:

Music & Song; Movement & Dance; Speech & Drama.

 

Primarily, this means that anything goes within the confines of musical stage productions.

Copyright has to be obtained by the performer* More information about copyright is on our website.

 

*Permission will not be granted for any Andrew LLoyd Webber production.
