Learn & Grow From the Comforts of Home - May 12–Jul 21, 2020

Whether you're a musical theater lover wanting to brush up on some history, or a parent looking for an engaging new activity for your young ones – there's a little something for everyone this summer with these three new online classes. Learn from esteemed, award-winning instructors, all from the comforts of your couch.

The Broadway Musical and America is intended to give students a broad overview of the American musical from Oklahoma to the present. The course situates the form as a distinctly American phenomenon and which both influenced and was influenced by the American political landscape since the end of World War II. The course, which will include special Broadway guests, will survey classic works of musical theater, and we will engage, discuss and think about why the Broadway musical has endured as an important American art form.
