Class Description

How will you tell the story of tonight?

Come learn the fundamental aspects of musical theatre
as we break down Hamilton: The Musical!

Through your favorite songs and characters, we will explore: 
character study, embodiment, and delivery.

You will share the heart of this story through your
voice and eyes by performing a song from the hit show. 
Who lives, who dies, who tells your story?
Find out on Zoom, in the room where it happened!

This class will be co-taught and/or alternate each week
so you will be exposed to both Ms. Mara's vocal talents and
Ms. Daniela's stage production expertise. 

Inappropriate language will be removed. All songs will have clean lyrics.
