The campers will learn about contemporary musical theatre composers and their work, specifically William Finn, Jason Robert Brown, Ahrens and Flaherty. The campers will experiences rehearsing a production and performing excerpts in a live performance. Campers will complete an initial evaluation form to assess their knowledge of the materials being presented.

This evaluation will include rating (numerical scale and verbally) the artistic, organizational, professional and personal merits of camp. Campers will be interviewed by a 3rd party evaluator.
