This course is for students who want to be involved in the creation and presentation of a musical production that is part of the American College Theatre Festival (ACTF) competition. The course introduces students to the various aspects that make up a musical, and based upon auditions and interviews, students can take part in performing music, acting, technical theatre work, designing, dancing, or stage managing under the supervision of a faculty director and other theatre, music, and dance professionals. Students will be evaluated by judges representing ACTF during public performances at Rio Hondo College, and some will be chosen to compete at the regional and national festivals in the areas of acting, singing, dancing, stage managing, directing, and/or stage design. This course may be taken once and repeated three times for credit.
