About the workshop:
This is the culmination of our two-day Musical-in-a-Weekend workshop where we put together songs, dances and scenes from the musical’s main storyline. We had a great time doing it, and it's quite amazing what you can accomplish in just two days.
We spent two weekend days working on the songs and storyline. Instead of a script, we had a storyboard, so we knew what was supposed to happen when and which song to sing, but we improvised the dialogue.
After two days’ work, we presented the results to our non-paying audience, who enjoyed it immensely, as did we. We were all amazed at the quality of the work after just two days’ rehearsal.
