Sweet Charity - Festival of Theater 2016

Professional Musical Theatre Workshop

The Musical Workshop is built on the foundation of the Professional Theatre Workshop.

The curriculum focuses on developing the sensory, emotional, and physical work that makes up The Actor’s Toolbox with a concentration in
musical performance for the actor.

The added musical component aims to create better actors AND musicians through additional instruction in song interpretation, music theory, sight-singing, and proper vocal technique as well as a musical theatre scene study class.

The actor who completes this program will leave Circle with a strong acting basis along with techniques necessary to thrive in musical theatre.

The Circle in the Square Theatre School is a clock-hour based program of study. As defined by the U.S. Department of Education for Title IV purposes, one clock hour contains at least 50 minutes of instruction in a 60 minute period of time. Instruction may include class, lecture, recitation, faculty supervised labs, shop training, internships and correspondence preparation. A clock hour, therefore, is based on an actual hour of attendance. This is the standard employed by the Circle in the Square Theatre School in assigning clock hours to a course.
