Musical theater is a form of theatrical performance that combines songs, spoken dialogue, acting and dance with humor, pathos, love, and anger, all communicated through words, music, and movement. American musical theater emerged in the 1870’s and continued into the early 1900’s with productions by Gilbert and Sullivan, Harrigan and Hart, George M. Cohan, Jerome Kern, Florenz Ziegfeld and many more. These musicals were followed by such groundbreaking works as Show Boat, Oklahoma, My Fair Lady, Hair, A Chorus Line, Les Misérables, Rent, The Producers, Wicked, and Hamilton. Class sessions will include theater history, relevant background information and an impressive array of video musical clips.
