This class will be a collaborative, hands-on workshop for playwrights and composers who will work together throughout the semester to create original, one-act musicals. Students will generate show ideas, draft librettos, and musicalize their scripts to create original musical theater pieces. Both playwrights and composers will write lyrics. Students will explore writing strategies and narrative structure and apply those skills to tell stories through the distinct genre of the American musical. Students will leave the class with a grasp of the components of this art form, as well strategies to create new work of their own.
