A tuneful, heartwarming story, it is based on the real life story of the Von Trapp Family singers, one of the world’s best-known concert groups in the era immediately preceding World War II.  Maria, the tomboyish postulant at an Austrian abbey who becomes a governess in the home of a widowed naval captain with seven children, brings a new love of life and music into the home.

Slam poetry was created in the 1980’s as a way to challenge a unique art form. Poetry out loud has existed for centuries, but the specificity of Slam allows artists to refine their work and use their voices more effectively. In this course, students will learn how to write and perform for themselves as well as collaboratively, and learn to use the best gift we are all given – our voices.

In this 8-week class, students will receive four songs from two different eras of musical theatre. There will be pre- and post-1960’s pieces assigned, and students will receive vocal coaching as well as acting coaching. You will be learning how to mark and make your very own audition cuts, and how to get in front of one or more people and drop right into a song out of nowhere. A showcase with all of the students will be put on at the end of the quarter. This is great for students who want to get serious about auditions and want to get more songs in their repertoires!
