Synopsis

This unit will provide students with a sustained opportunity to work on the performance of a musical theatre piece, from exploratory workshops to full public production.

Students successfully completing ATS3478 will develop:

  1. An understanding of aspects of creative processes in the field, and of the procedures appropriate to the collaborative development of new work.
  2. An increased familiarity with the distinctive methodological issues involved in the study of the form, and of the languages appropriate to their articulation and analysis.
  3. A greater awareness of the implications of structural choices in the evolution of a musical theatre text.
  4. Skills in the performance and technical areas related to the genre.
  5. The capacity to articulate critical analyses in systematic written argument, and in clear and confident oral presentations.

At third-year level, the capacity to apply more sophisticated theoretical models to the prescribed work.
