WHAT IS MUSICAL THEATRE?
Musical theatre is a form of theatrical performance that combines songs, spoken dialogue, acting and dance. The story and emotional content of a musical – humour, pathos, love, anger – are communicated through words, music, movement and technical aspects of the entertainment as an integrated whole.
In a strong musical theatre program like BPA, students do more than sing, dance and act. They will focus on creative skills and voice development, improvisation and movement – skills that go beyond the stage to general communication. They work on clarity and expression which are critical factors when it comes to public speaking and presentation skills, both as students and throughout their adult lives.
Contrary to what many think, an effective musical theatre program actually embraces both the extroverted and introverted kids. Musical theatre based programs draw all kids together to share creative ideas, and all children, not just the confident few, are given the opportunity to share their own ideas and collaborate. Natural leaders learn cooperation and how to listen, and those who prefer the sidelines are encouraged to lead. All creative ideas are welcomed and encouraged so that every child feels positive about his or her contribution. Musical theatre also gets children beyond their social circle to meet new friends and build compassion for others. They learn respect by working with teachers/directors and fellow students toward a common goal.
Musical theatre instills creativity and helps children to “think outside the box.” Drama related activities nurture spontaneity and help students think on their feet and use their imaginations. Students learn empathy and to understand how others feel. They identify emotions and have to express them. Our musical theatre programs also teach patience and commitment. Children learn through patience and perseverance that they can produce something wonderful. They learn that hard work leads to gratification.
Kids will have a fun, tactile and exploratory experience through imaginative story-telling.
The major emphasis is placed on using the imagination to create unlimited adventure.
Through music, movement, dance, props and active play.
Similar to IMAGINATIONS students will also learn stage directions, character development and acting terms while engaging in imaginative story-telling.
Students in this age group need to be able to understand and have basic reading abilities to get the most out of the class. We do cover script reading and memorisation.
