Cabaret Spotlight for Adults

A week of evening workshops for adults exploring, analyzing, and performing legendary musical theater hits! 

All with a particular focus on the work of Steven Sondheim.

Monday, 6/24 – Friday, 6/28

6pm – 8:30pm

Ages 18+

Register by 6/1

Live performance 6/28 at 7:30pm in the Orchard Room

Cabaret for Adults is a deep dive into the history of musical theater through the lens of Steven Sondheim’s work, from 1957’s West Side Story through to 2023’s Here We Are. 

Students will select a song from Sondheim’s catalog and workshop the piece throughout, by researching its history, dissecting its style, analyzing its lyrics, and exploring acting techniques that can add dimension and theatricality to its performance. 

Additional songs will also be performed in duets and large groups to round out each student’s experience.

At the end of the week, students will perform their piece for family and friends on our Orchard Room stage. 

Private, in-person assessments will take place on Wednesday, June 5th, to help faculty learn more about each student’s goals and proficiency, and to make sure that song selections are appropriate. 

This fun, supportive class will be run by Scott Murphy, who was personally selected by the late Steven Sondheim to receive the Garson Kanin award from the Theatre Hall of Fame.
