The E. A. Rawlinson Centre is gearing up for the start of the Fall 2013 Season. The season opener with Ian Tyson and Corb Lund is sold out but tickets are available for all of the other great shows.
One of the highlights of the Fall Season has been the annual Broadway North Christmas Musical. Over the years, local people of all ages have delighted in bringing the magic of musical theatre to Prince Albert audiences.
Broadway North is now in their second consecutive year of offering musical theatre classes at the E. A. Rawlinson Centre. Semester 1 of the Broadway North Theatre School will begin on Sept. 7. The program offers training in all aspects of musical theatre to anyone over six years old. Musical theatre requires skills in acting, singing and dancing.
The program strives to train participants in dramatic skills, vocal technique and dance abilities because these are skills that students will have for life. The classes are held from 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday morning.
Everyone registered will take three classes. The drama class will deal with improvisational skills, speech arts and character building. The music class will teach singing technique, breath control and diction and the dance class will focus on musical theatre style, choreography and blocking.
Semester 1 of the Broadway North Program is based on performance. The end product will be the annual Christmas musical with this year’s offering being Disney’s Beauty and the Beast Jr. Everyone who is enrolled in the program will be part of the production. The second Semester of the Broadway North Program will go from January to the end of March and Semester 3 will be held next August.
