Program Goal: StageStruck Musical Theatre fulfills both the drama and music components of the curriculum. This program encourages students to become active participants in exploring ideas through music, movement and drama, and responding to music. This program culminates in students incorporating these skills into a final performance. Students will develop musical literacy through singing, playing, dancing, performing and actively listening.
How Electric Moon achieves this: Students learn to tap into their creativity while learning enhanced musical theatre technique and songs and dances to various Broadway shows. Professional theatre facilitators support students in exploring different aspects of acting, ensemble work and movement through the fundamentals of improvisation and related theatre games and activities. In one-time workshops, students will learn a musical theatre song and dance. In an ongoing workshop series, students can work towards a final performance learning an in depth a full, show-worthy musical number. Opportunities are available for students to write small scenes or monologues linked to songs to create a mini-musical.
