Les Misérables is the world’s longest running musical — a true modern classic based on Victor Hugo’s novel and featuring one of the most memorable scores of all time. This show has been the most powerful ensemble production Starlight has ever done. Classes will begin virtually with hopes to perform live either in a full stage production or concert form in May. If performing live is still not an option come May, we will do a virtual streaming, but rest assure the show will go on.
Cyn Strycharz- director
Dan Mashia- music director
Prepare 16-32 bars to sing. Best if it comes from the show but it doesn’t have to.
You will be singing alone as there’s an audio delay online; however, you are welcome to accompany yourself if you should happen to play piano or have an instrumental recording. Please do warm ups on your own.
You do not have to audition to participate in the show, you can just sign up for the class.
This class will help teach the students how to prepare for a musical audition, what music should they select and how to express the meaning in their piece. They will learn about presentational theater that acknowledges the audience through language, movement and signs that shows the actor is aware of the audience’s presence. Through this the student will learn the difference between acting for a straight dramatic play and a musical.
Students will learn the difference between stage acting and film acting. They will then create a story line for a short film, write the story board, record and edit video for the film. This class will be taught under the leadership of Peter Katona. Peter majored in Film & Video Studies at the University of Michigan where he entered the Honors Screenwriting program and produced film shorts on 16mm. Since then Peter has produced and edited films for a variety of sources, taught film theory and production classes, and has worked professionally on a feature documentary.
This class will explore the work of the director, ranging from approaching the text, to articulating an active point of view for a production, to working with actors in rehearsal. Students will learn about stage pictures, levels, creating moments on stage and the act of storytelling.
