Writing, Developing, and Performing a One-Person Show
This course is a journey for the student in self-discovery, self-revelation, and self-expression combining musical elements to tell an autobiographical story. Students write an autobiographical one-person show based on their life experiences, including writing and performing original music. Course components include daily journal writing, script writing based on traditional dramatic play structure, plot and character development, and storytelling. The final project will be a fifteen-minute, self-produced one-person performance on stage for an audience.
