History of Musicals is a class for anyone, from the Hamilfans to the rock dwellers who don’t even know their Do-Re-Mi’s. We will cover everything from operetta and vaudeville to the Disney Renaissance and what La La Land got wrong. There will be some lecture, but students should mostly expect an interactive environment with discussion, videos, instruments, and performances. “Now is the time to seize the day.”

Teacher Bio: Katie Hemming

My name is Katie Hemming and I have been a musical theater and opera performer for over 15 years. Some of my favorite roles were Thea is Spring Awakening, Cinderella in Into the Woods, and the girl who couldn’t sing in A Chorus Line.  I minored in Music and Theater in college, and spent the last year writing a musical of my own. While writing, I did extensive research on how musicals began and how they morphed into what they are today, both on-stage and in film. I’m so excited to share this fascinating story with all of you.
