Our goal at The Actors Room is to provide an environment where students learn the essentials of musical theatre. Classes will be broken down into learning the fundamentals of Singing, Dancing & Acting. Each class is 3hrs in length and will give students the opportunity to learn an grow in a safe and fun environment; as they will be encouraged to step beyond themselves. Our main purpose for the Revue style of program is to ensure the highest quality of teaching, while still fostering an environment where each student can feel as though they play an important part in the show. We aim to stay away from large production numbers that end up seeing most students play roles in the ensemble, versus focusing on learning how to take centre stage. This style of production offers us the flexibility to produce a more unique style of show, with a variety of scenes and solos to entertain all audiences.
A revue (from French 'magazine' or 'overview') is a type of multi-act popular theatrical entertainment that combines music, dance, and sketches. The revue has its roots in 19th century popular entertainment and melodrama but grew into a substantial cultural presence of its own during its golden years from 1916 to 1932. Though most famous for their visual spectacle, revues frequently satirized contemporary figures, news or literature. Similar to the related subforms of operetta and musical theatre, the revue art form brings together music, dance and sketches to create a compelling show. In contrast to these, however, revue does not have an overarching storyline. Rather, a general theme serves as the motto for a loosely-related series of acts that alternate between solo performances and dance ensembles.
