Creative Approach and Experiences OfferedOver the years I've developed a Musical Theatre Creation course that has been offered at both the Segal Centre Academy and Montreal Children's Theatre in year-long, summer camp, workshop and virtual settings. Although the course always starts off the same, with students sharing about themselves, their journey and their interests, the outcomes could not be more different (Haunted Hotel Reality TV, Space Exploration, Fairy Tale Adventure, High Stakes Mystery, etc.). The course is very collaborative and is geared towards students who enjoy music and musical theatre, no experience required! Depending on the time we have together, we can focus on writing one big musical number, adding staging or choreography and even scene work. The course can also be used to emphasize themes or material being worked on in the classroom!
The opportunity to work professionally as an actor, director, writer, composer and stage manager has reinforced my collaborative and explorative approach to teaching.
