Musical Theater Builders (Advanced Classes at Symphony Space)

Music Theater Builders, Advanced Classes at Symphony Space are designed to bring out the unique vision of each child with the help of professional, conservatory trained musicians and performers.


Class Overview

Each day, Music Theater Builders starts off with group warm-ups.  Through the use of various improvisational games and exercises the group works together to develop characters and a story line.  Next, an original script is created based on the characters and ideas the children have created through improvisation.  New lyrics are also devised and set to famous opera, symphonic and musical theater hit tunes.  The students then begin to rehearse their show, complete with group and solo singing, theatrics and dance moves.  In this advanced class children will also explore antiphonal singing, as well as singing in parts.  On the final day of class the children perform their original musical theater production for friends and family!

We predict you will be delighted by how inventive, hilarious, and well crafted the final performance will be.
