Fall Semester at SUNY Geneseo
I'm so excited to be involved in two new-to-me classes at SUNY Geneseo this fall!
As part of the Musical Theatre Program's annual "Page to Stage" production, I am directing Into the Woods, with music direction by Don Kot. In a "Page to Stage" show, we rehearse for a shorter amount of time and utilize very pared-down design elements. Into the Woods was the first musical with which I was involved when I was in undergrad (Don Kot directed that production as well!) and it's so fun to get to rediscover this musical with a new set of students. Rehearsals are well underway and I can't wait to share this show with everyone! Performances will be September 28 - October 2, 2022 in the Doty Recital Hall on Geneseo's campus.
I'm also co-teaching an Ensembles course with Don. We work with first-year through seniors in the musical theatre major, and explore different styles of musical theatre songs and what it means to be an effective performer when you're *not* in the spotlight. We're doing songs from Spring Awakening, The Prom, State Fair, and You're A Good Man, Charlie Brown this semester.
