Musical Theatre (MT) Foundations invites incoming students into their role as creative practitioners of Musical Theatre. Students investigate the elements and principles of artistic process that can be applied to all aspects of creating musical theatre. The course aims to develop students’ awareness, observation and collaborative skills, and their ability to transpose experiences in the world into written, vocal and physical form. Production numbers exploring basic style and genre will be major projects. Readings, composition work in class and attendance at Columbia College Chicago productions (and perhaps in the city of Chicago), should deepen students’ understanding and appreciation of the scope of contemporary musical theatre making. Course will meet in a five-week sub session.
