Winter 2020

Please note that the Musical Theatre Ensemble will run in the WINTER TERM only!

Instructor: Susan Blyth-Schofield, M.A.
Collaborative Pianist: Dr. Larry Tarof

Class time: 7 – 10pm on Monday evenings at The Carleton Dominion Chalmers Centre. Some additional week-end
rehearsals will be required towards the end of term to polish the production. The performance will be on Thursday 26 March in the KM Theatre at Carleton University. On the 22
nd of March 2020 Stephen Sondheim will turn 90. To honour the giant of American Musical Theatre I am excited to announce that the Carleton University Musical Theatre Ensemble (CUMTE) will be performing a revue of his works.
CUMTE is open to everyone – you do not need to be in Music to join us. Our first rehearsal will take place on Monday 6 January 2020. It will be both an information session and a chance for you to sing for us so that we can get to know you a bit and cast the show.

Please bring:

• your updated resume (CV) if you have one – there will be a sheet for you to fill out as well.
• a Sondheim song – we might hear all of it or ask you for a one minute cut so please be prepared with both
options. If you have any question about “a one minute cut” just email me and I will help you out with it.
Larry will accompany you, but you must provide sheet music in the key you are singing in. If you are unsure
about the key, just bring the music and we will sort it out for you.
• although there will be choreography in the show, no dancing will be required at the audition

The Ensemble meets once a week from 7- 10pm on Monday evenings at The Carleton Dominion Chalmers Centre.
Due to the short rehearsal time, additional weekend rehearsal will be required, and there is, of course, a tech week.
If you are interested in the technical side of things (back-stage and stage management) there are possibilities for you
there as well. Please do not hesitate to contact me at the email address below
For those students receiving a credit for the course (satisfactory/unsatisfactory), the assessment will be based on in class work, preparation, and participation in the dress rehearsal and final performance.
Have a great rest of your summer and we’ll see you in January for an exciting year – and bring your friends!!!
