H.M.S. Pinafore: Making Classical Musicals Modern

Shoalhaven Entertainment Centre 2020 Season

Thursday 13 February | 12pm

How can a text written 140 years ago resonate with us today? How do we make a Victorian musical feel new again in 2020? 

In this two-hour workshop Director Kate Gaul will begin with a series of exercises to explore story and character. Taking the spoken scenes from H.M.S. Pinafore the group will then apply the principals to the scenarios.

Note: There isn’t any singing required in this workshop. Students and teachers should come prepared to move, take on challenges and have fun! Kate will provide the scenes and it maybe useful for participants to have read a synopsis or even heard a recording of the operetta.
