Presented by the Music Department, the Into the Light! is a culmination of the Musical Theater Workshop (MUR 133/233), an intensive semester course in acting and singing for the musical stage, team taught by David Runzo and Kim Kowalke. Students in MUR 133 prepared a formal audition (song and monologue), learned techniques of acting and interpreting a song, and performed several scenes from classic American musicals. The advanced students of MUR 233 also directed a scene, interspliced a monologue and a song, wrote and performed a fifteen-minute musical, and negotiated a series of exercises developed by Stanley Walden at the Musical Theater Training Program of the Hochschule der Kuenste in Berlin. Into the Light!, preparation of which is the final two-week unit of the course, showcases various aspects of the assignments from this semester; you might even say it is the students’ final examination. Please join us! Admission is free and open to the public.
