Stephen Sondheim and Hugh Wheller’s chilling, suspenseful, heart pounding masterpiece is the perfect focus for this one week intensive musical theatre workshop intended for theatre students 16 and above. The operatic complexity of the score: it is almost entirely sung through- makes it darkly spellbinding.
Sophisticated, macabre, visceral and uncompromising, the musical nevertheless has a great sense of fun, mixing intense drama with amusing moments and dark humour.
Participants will be divided into two groups according to acting/singing ability and experience. Acting, Singing and Dance sessions will focus on the following skills
- How the text and the music informs the performance and characterization
- Song Study- solo and ensemble
- Scene Study
- Dance and Movement
The Course tutors will be Rob Wilshaw and Jean Cafa together with vocal tutor Francesca Aquilina. Leaflets and application forms will be sent on request.
