I was talking to Nicole McDonald about the possibility of doing a workshop on presenting muscials, and thinking out of the box looking at musicals beyond the regular "money makers". Looking at older lesser known work that have great stories, or opportunities for education, entertainment and engagement. Really just an idea, but thought I would throw it out there. I am also NOT a formal teacher, I was a performer and now administrator/director. I love talking about muscial theatre, and how we can do more musicals in schools. Let me know if this may be of interest and I can put together something more formal....maybe it's more of a "informative lecture" than workshop?
