Last weekend, Spokane Civic Theatre performed Songs For a New World composed by Jason Robert Brown. Civic and Jason Robert Brown offered a Master Class which was a three hour intensive musical theatre session for a group of eight actor/singers. All of the master class participants were also featured in the in concert over the weekend. For the class, Mr. Brown had each of the Songs For a New World participants prepare two musical theatre pieces in advance to be accompanied by music director, Michael Saccomanno.
Theatre patrons, students, parents, etc. were invited to audit the master class with an opportunity to learn more about what goes in to threatre, singing, and acting. We had approximately 30 patrons who supported and participated at that level. Yvonne AK Johnson noted “We learn from both actively participating and from observing others practicing their craft. Everyone went away from the experience with pages of notes!”
