Part of the Main Online Workshops: Prose to Song

Ever read a piece of text, news article or diary entry that you thought would make a cracking musical theatre number? Then join Burnt Lemon Theatre co-founder Cara Baldwin as she challenges you to transform a short story in prose into song lyrics. Together you’ll explore song structure, unpack popular song types and discover what makes a real show stopper.

Participants will learn:

– Writing for musicals

– Song structures

– 11 O’Clock and ‘I want song’ exploration

– Taking spoken dialogue into song

No prior experience is required to enjoy this workshop!
