    Write a Musical

    Help us write a musical for the BCT MainStage. Students will work with teaching artists who are also composers and playwrights to create dialogue and music as well as crafting the story.  The musical will be produced in an upcoming season.  A workshop-style reading of the musical will take place on the last day of class.  Please note, this is not a performance class.  Students will be writing and brainstorming in a collaborative, group setting.
