About this Event
From the West End to Broadway
‘If you’ve always wanted to know where musicals came from and how they get from concept to stage, this is the course for you!’ – Adam Carver, course leader
This six-week course provides a fascinating and entertaining introduction to the history of the musical, from its origins right up to the modern day. Students will explore how musicals work, their impact on popular culture and theatre, and how musicals came to exist…
This is the perfect chance to learn more about your favourite musicals, discover new ones, and enhance your enjoyment of the musicals on offer at Birmingham Hippodrome. With the help of an assigned listening each week and heaps of works covered in class, there’s a huge range of musicals old and new for you to delve into.
You don’t need to be an expert in musical theory or stagecraft – you just need to have a love of musicals and the desire to learn more about them. Sessions will be in an informal seminar style, with plenty of discussion and audio-visual learning. There is no written work or assessment, so just sign up, come along and enjoy!
