Musical Theatre Class
Enjoy singing and acting? costumes and choreography? Want to be part of a dedicated little Musical Theatre troupe?
We place a strong focus on healthy singing, good repertoire and live musical accompaniment. We tailor our class show to suit the individual needs of the cast members. This means the teachers create our own show each year, and as we do so, we consider what would benefit each participant in terms of the dialogue, monologue, solo and ensemble numbers. We place a high value on creating a supportive and inclusive team environment.
MONDAY 7:00 - 8:15 ages 9-12
THURSDAY 7:30 - 8:45 ages 13+
We meet potential class participants first before admitting them to the class. We are looking for participants who function well in a class setting, are respectful, cooperative and are good, positive team members. Call the office to set up your meeting with Maggie. Be prepared to sing alone and read dialogue at this meeting. (Students who are already known to us do not need to set up a meeting.)
Cost: $100/month for 8 months.
Class runs from September to April (or could be October to May), 75 min classes
Production is at the end of April, ticket prices are $5 for an in-house show
The first two or three classes we focus on acting skills and singing non-show specific music. This is when the teachers are observing and listening and thinking about how to create the show and who should sing which role. Usually on the third week, the show is "revealed" to the class and scripts and roles are handed out.
Our costuming and scenery are very basic, usually just things we all pool together from our own homes, or Maggie's costume collection, or borrow from the Leduc Drama Society! There is no additional cost for costumes, unless you want to go thrifting for something specific for yourself.,
Non-Leduc Music School students are welcome
RECENT PAST YEARS
2023-2024 school year. We plan to remake the classic show Annie into our own version, Leduc School of Music-style!
2022-2023 school year: We created a show tailormade to our cast called "Descendants - The Wand of True Power". Using Disney's evil villain characters and their teenaged children as our starting point, our singer-actors staged a 5-scene production culminating in a complex caper to obtain the Wand of True Power, and ultimately may lessons were learned! The show's writer was David Melax, and the director was Emily Slade.
