For one Saturday only, January 28th, ANMT’s Scott Guy will be visiting the Alcove Theater (414 Mason Street, Fifth Floor, SF) from 10-4, for a workshop of your musical theatre songs, scenes and lyrics. Fee is $20. This is a trial workshop; if there’s enough interest, we can discuss an ongoing series of workshops (once a quarter? once a month?).
Scott will speak to book, music and lyrics, as well as other points specific to your musical (things like lyric structure, progression, prosody, imagery; musical point of view, events, structure, range, euphony; book intention, clarity, diction, conflict, strength of character’s desires, etc.).
Your presentation itself should be really simple and modest: you yourself singing at a piano or to a CD is perfectly fine (in fact, preferred); no need for polished performances from actors. This workshop is about writing, not about performance.
We’ll also find some time to discuss what you might want in future workshops: Scott is a producer in Los Angeles, and can also talk about topics such as marketing, approaching producers, agents, raising money, collaboration agreements, etc.
