We will take an iconic section of a musical theater piece from the American Classics lexicon. During the semester, we will dissect it, examine it, learn from it, and then produce it.
The class explores what makes Musical Theater work, how to create theater pieces that eventually sing and dance, how to understand them as an actor/collaborator/creator/scholar. And how to bring musical theater ideas and ideals to fruition.
Shakespeare’s classic comedy of fairies, mismatched lovers and amateur theatricals, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, is performed by the undergraduate acting company of Professor Peter Lichtenfels’ DRA 122B class in Wright Hall’s Arena Stage. This performance is completely supported by the work achieved in the class and opens a window into the world of performance education at an advanced level.
Ticketing for this workshop performance is a pay-what-you-want at the door policy. Suggested donation is $5.
This is the second event of a three-part dance series that brings the audience into the performance process. The unique formatting of this show provides the viewer an opportunity to see works in various stages of conception and development.
