What is Musical Theatre?
Musical theater is a form of theatrical performance that combines singing, talking through dialogue, acting and dancing. The story and the emotional content of a musical theater performance (such as humor, passion, love, anger) are communicated through words, music, movement and singing as a single integrated ensemble. Although musical theater overlaps with other theatrical forms such as opera and dance, it can be distinguished from the equal importance given to music as compared to dialogue, movement and other elements. In any case, the result of a musical theater performance is simply magical!
Musical Theater is a unique art form with multiple benefits:
Cultures creativity, discipline and dedication so that children reach the desired levels of artistic expression.
Encourages collaboration, communication and teamwork because it is a live spectacle.
Through the role of different roles, it forces the children to look inside and to enter the place of the other (empathy), creates strong emotions and motivates them to listen to the contemporary problems.
It cultivates critical thinking and forms an ethical character because the musical theater interprets the problems of modern times.
Develops concentration because it combines dance, theater and singing, thus also improving the coordination of children.
Recreates through music, dance and song in a quality way, making children happy.
