Acting Through Song - The Works of Stephen Sondheim

Acting Through Song - The Works of Stephen Sondheim

Our Acting Through Song – The Works of Stephen Sondheim is built on the same model as our existing Acting Through Song Course, but focusing solely on the material of Stephen Sondheim.

In our Acting Through Song Course you will explore material from the catalogue of Stephen Sondheim. During the classes you will master the art of acting through song, combining both acting and musicality to give convincing and moving theatrical performances. This is an opportunity to dissect and analyse the fascinating lyrics of Stephen Sondheim with plenty of room for discussion and ‘geeking out’.

The course culminates in an informal showcase for invited friends and family, giving you the chance to put what you have learned into practice and share your progress.

This singing course is open to everyone and there is no audition required to join. However, in order to get the most out of the classes, some previous acting and singing experience is recommended.

About Stephen Sondheim

Stephen Sondheim was an American composer and lyricist. Among the most important figures in 20th-century Theatre, Sondheim was praised for having reinvented the American musical with shows that tackled unexpected themes that range far beyond the traditional with music and lyrics of unprecedented complexity and sophistication.

His works include West Side Story, Gypsy, Company, Sweeney Todd, Into the Woods and many more.

Our Approach

Choose to work on one song or try different ones, and our experienced tutors guide you to select the best piece for your voice for the final class showcase. Each week you work on your chosen songs in groups. The class environment is supportive, open and friendly to enable you to build your confidence performing solos. You are encouraged to try new and challenging material for performance. There will be plenty of opportunity for individualised feedback and development from your tutor.

In addition to the solo work, you work on two group Sondheim pieces which open and close the showcase.

No Venue

All City Academy tutors are experienced professionals from theatre, film/TV and performance industries. So whilst they're training you they may also be rehearsing for a West End show or working on a movie. We like that and we do believe it makes a difference in class.

No Tutor
