Summary
"Musicals! is an illustrated sourcebook that provides comprehensive, step-by-step guidance for musical directors, teachers, administrators, students, and actors. Boland and Argentini emphasize the director's role in the three main building blocks for mounting a musical show: preparation, production, and performance. They discuss in particular the preparation of the director's prompt book, an invaluable tool that facilitates the entire process of rehearsals, staging, and blocking."--BOOK JACKET. "Musicals! takes the reader through selecting which show to perform, obtaining the script (and the associated legal and licensing responsibilities involved), holding auditions, casting, developing a rehearsal schedule, choreographing musical numbers, preparing publicity, and running the box office. It also includes a checklist for opening night and instructions for the final strike as well as discussion of lighting, costumes, safety precautions, and advice on creating different kinds of sets."--Jacket
