Musical Theatre Unit

Vocal Director: Amanda Hilstead
Choreography: Kate Weiland

Our grade 12 students were fortunate enough to complete  a unit of study in Musical Theatre this year, despite Covid-19 restrictions. Choreographer, Kate Weiland and PVA Vocal Director, Amanda Hilstead teamed up with the drama teachers to find creative and safe ways to teach singing and dancing skills in an effort to satiate the student’s drive to continuing learning musical theatre. While we found that singing while dancing was off the table, we were pleased that recording their vocals and performing choreography to their recorded music worked very well! It may appear that our students are singing behind their masks, but in fact, they are lip syncing to enhance the story-telling aspect of their pieces. All are grateful for the opportunity to learn how to adapt our creative work under challenging circumstances!
