ANMT's sixth annual MUSICAL THEATRE BOOT CAMP presents:


Instructor: Scott Guy

Four Sunday evenings from 7pm to 10pm

July 24, 31, Aug 7, 14

Course Fee: $125 (Early Bird/ANMT Member Fee: $95)

Spend four Sunday evenings studying the lyrics of Stephen Sondheim's very first musical, Saturday Night. We'll spend as much as an hour on a given lyric, analyzing it for form, rhyme, character diction, point of view, progression...and hints of the mature Sondheim-to-come. We'll play each song from the show (on a CD), and have a group exploration, lead by ANMT's Lyric Lab instructor, Scott Guy.

Graduates of this class will be given free access to a series of online lectures on Saturday Night (the lectures are part of a projected series based on Sondheim's book Finishing the Hat). You might enjoy this course even more if you acquire a copy of Sondheim's book, but it is not a requirement of the course
