The Wonderful World of the Musical
Poliniak, Susan
Teaching Music, v17 n4 p32-35 Jan 2010
The challenges and joys of presenting high school and middle school musicals are myriad--and, due to the many variables involved, often unlike those of choral concerts, band concerts, or just about anything else that one may encounter as a teacher. With so many moving parts, it is easy to feel overwhelmed, especially if one is new to the game. In this article, several school musical theatre directors talk about their experiences and give their recommendations, not just for producing a great show but also for ensuring that the show provides a great educational opportunity for students. Each director has a different approach and takes on different duties within a production, but all of them have learned what is required to keep everything running smoothly.
