      musical Theater production (year-long class)

      Actors will spend a FULL YEAR working with CO/LAB Teaching Artists and guest composers to devise an original musical. In order to register for this class, actors must have completed one semester of Musical Theater at CO/LAB.  This includes Musical Theater Ensemble, Musical Theater Production, or Musical Theater Intensive. Participants must be willing to commit to both the Fall and Spring semesters of Musical Theater Production.

      This year, in addition to our regular performances, the Musical Theater Production class will be performing for a student matinee group during the day on Thursday, May 9. This performance is mandatory, along with all other Tech, Dress, and Performance dates. Because this is a week day and we recognize some individuals will need to take off work, actors will be compensated $75 for this performance.
