Good morning everyone. I hope that you all had a great week. If you have not read the Week 4 post, please refer to that for your assignment that will be due on May 24th.

Just a reminder, please check-in with me every week by email or in the comments below, as I am still taking weekly attendance.

I will once again provide a link to the Drama 9/10 lesson if you wish to partake, but it is not required.

Musical Theatre Assignment:

For Musical Theatre, I am tasking each of you with creating a concept musical that incorporates elements of musical theatre to tell a narrative about your own life or experiences. This assignment should be deeply personal to you, and I want you all to give a lot of thought into which songs you want to represent your personal experiences as growing individuals.

By “concept musical,” what I am asking for is exactly that: a concept. I want you to outline a narrative based upon your own experiences (these can be high school experiences, life experiences, childhood experiences, or even a fictional narrative that focuses on an area of importance in your life). Within this narrative, you should be including songs that you feel express your deepest desires, goals, dreams and emotions.

I am not asking for a formal script, but rather, giving a general synopsis of the narrative, indicating the points your songs appear, and what these songs express when they appear. 

For this concept, I would like you to include at least five songs that you feel speak to your experiences as a person. While I am giving you as much choice as possible for what these fives songs are, I want you to also include the following:

  • An “I Want” song that gives an idea of what your goals or desires are in life (or what they were at one point).
  • An “11 o’ Clock Number” that responds to your “I Want” song, and expresses how those desires have been fulfilled, changed, been lost or grown in some way. 

This Concept Musical assignment will be due on Sunday, May 24th at 11:59pm. This will give you about three weeks to think about this assignment, and complete it. I will also be linking you to the Drama 9/10 lessons during those weeks in case you’d like to participate in the activities that they will be doing. Please don’t forget to check-in each week by leaving a comment below or on Microsoft Teams.


I hope that everyone gives a lot of thought to this project. If you have any questions or concerns, please email me at giuliano.vigna@burnabyschools.ca. 

Have a great week.

-Mr. V
