Speaker/Host: Becky Verner
Whether it’s a Broadway revival like The Music Man or new Broadway songs from current musicals like Dear Evan Hansen and Six (about the wives of Henry VIII), in this class you’ll learn more about the musicals, the story line and the music. You’ll leave humming at least one melody and will know more about the music from a number of different Broadway musicals. For a toe-tapping time, sign up!
