Devising Musical Theatre
Youth Music Theatre UK
This intensive one-day course is designed for artists working professionally in the performance
industry to explore different approaches to devising musical theatre.
By the end of the course you should have:
- Gained a deeper understanding of the key components of musical theatre performance
- Explored devising styles and techniques particularly suited to creating musical theatre
- Examined how creative ‘triggers’ can be used to develop material
- Looked at how material can be structured to create a finished musical theatre performance
This highly practical training will take place over a morning and afternoon session during which
the tutors will introduce and apply devising techniques appropriate for musical theatre.
By using a mixture of tutor and participant-led work the course will utilise your own creative
ideas. Various “ triggers” for creative work and stimuli that can be used to generate imaginative
thinking will be explored and discussed.
The tutors will also provide a structured format for creating devised work leading to performance of professional high quality. By working as part of a team with sessions planned to incorporate the needs of everyone all participants’ interests will be addressed and explored.
