A song and dance revue featuring senior students from Theatre Sheridan.
The show consists of a selection of second year dance critiques that showcase theatre students’ development of craft including concept development, casting, costuming and rehearsing. The Dance Critiques are created by the 2nd-year students as part of their Dance Performance class. The criteria for these pieces is simple - it must be a dance-based theatrical presentation. The students develop their concept, choose their cast, costume the dancers, and spend hours rehearsing the presentation. The results are more than impressive. The Dance performances in Catch a Rising Star are representative of this most talented 2nd-year class.
The 3rd-year Presentations comes from work done in the 3rd-year Music Theatre workshop. This course consists of assigned solos and ensemble pieces from the 20th century opera and music theatre repertoire. The assignments are designed to further the students' abilities as musicians and actors, and to bring these skills together in a realistic and vocally sound fashion. Emphasis is placed on the student's ability to create a believable character while singing some of the most intricate material in the repertoire.
