Lyric Theatre Ensemble Winter 2024

This term the Lyric Theatre Ensemble will focus on Musical Theatre.  Once again, we will be putting together a revue, and we will talk about the theme in the first class. The revue will be made up of scenes including dialogue, solos, duets, and other small ensembles.  There will also be an opening and a closing number that will include everyone.  During the classes everyone will work on singing, acting, and basic dancing – the three elements required by a triple-threat musical performer.

Rehearsals take place in A900 in the Loeb building on Thursday nights from 6 to 9 pm and begin on 11 January 2024.  I am delighted that Larry Tarof will once again be our collaborative pianist.

The show will take place on Wednesday, 10 April 2024 with a dress rehearsal on Sunday 7 April 2024 in the evening.  Specific call times will be announced later in the term.


Everyone is welcome, but you must audition for placement. After we finish with the admin. side of things in the first class, I will be holding a performance class, and everyone will get a chance to sing.  You will be expected to act and embody your character, but a full blocking of your song will not be necessary.  Be aware that I might ask you to switch things up and sing part of your song again with a different characterization.  That performance class will be your audition.

Please bring the sheet music to a musical theatre song you know well and love to perform.  And please be sure that the music is in the right key for your voice.

If you have any questions, please be in touch:

Cheers, Susan
