LMY0102 - Sing with Me: Disney Songs
Do you love to sing? Join us for a week of songs, trivia, games, and fun! We will discover the history behind our favorite songs and learn some “hidden gems” that may become new favorites. You will sing with simple sheet music, sing-along videos, and even a Disney Karaoke party. No previous music instruction is needed, but students who can read music may be given more challenging material. So, if you love the music of COCO, Zombies, Moana, Cinderella, Soul, Descendants, Aladdin, The Princess and the Frog, or ANY of the great songs in the Disney universe, join us and sing along!
LMY0037 - Broadway Musicals
Summer 2023, Fall 2023
This course will cover the most influential musicals of the 20th and 21st Centuries and how they influenced today's musicals. We will learn the roles and jobs that work together to create a production and try our hands at playwriting and design. In addition, each student will participate in the actual musical production process.
The Story of Hansel and Gretel
The audience delights in this charming musical adaptation. Sent into the woods, Hansel and Gretel meet up with a number of peculiar characters. A fiery troll guards his little wooden bridge. Even more, an articulate owl, a forest sprite, and two hobgoblins are in the service of an evil (but extremely funny) witch. She locks poor Hansel in a cage and feeds him nothing but cake! Everyone will cheer Gretel as she outwits the crone and sets free all the children who have been turned into cookies! Every dramatic moment is brought to life, from the night spent in the woods to the discovery of the candy-coated little cottage. Sweetened delightfully with music, all will enjoy the fun of songs like ’Gingerbread Witch’ and ’Apple Muffin Goblins.’
