Telling Stories Through SongUMS Performance Playground: Telling Stories Through Song

Sometimes we feel emotions so intense that the only way to express them is through song. Musical Theatre allows characters to express thoughts, feelings, and hopes in dynamic and entertaining ways.

Join UMS teaching artist Thani Brant on a journey of storytelling through song, and write your own “I Want” song with accompanying slides and worksheets.
