Event Details

Level: Intermediate

In this online musical long-form course you’ll have 6 weeks to dip your toes in the water of improvising musicals. Building on the beginner’s musical course you will explore more song structures and ways of using music and singing in your improv scenes. The emphasis is slightly more towards scenic and long-form elements of musical improv

What can I expect?

Musical games and exercises

Different vocal styles and ranges

Scenes going into songs

Putting together longer runs of scenes and songs or a musical piece

Who is this course suitable for?

People who have completed the online musical improv course, online musical intensive or equivalent with other organisations

Min. participants 6, max. participants 12.

If we have to cancel the event due to low numbers, we will do this with 24hours notice (and you will receive a warning 48 hours before the course if this looks likely).

Heather Urquhart trained in Physical Theatre and has studied improvisation at Chicago’s I.O theatre and Annoyance. She improvises with the Olivier Award-winning Showstopper! The ImprovisedMusical and is one of the directors of The Maydays. Her duo improv show ‘Ten Thousand Million Love Stories’ has also toured extensively most recently to Texas, Montreal and Karachi.

Heather’s other regular improv exploits include The Bumper Blyton Improvised Adventure, The Playground and The Concept and she is also a co-artistic director at The Nursery Theatre.

Heather was winner of the award for best female performer in the Brighton Fringe Festival 2013 and winner of the Argus Angel Award for artistic excellence for new musical The Opinion Makers in 2014. She is a guest vocalist with the mercury music prize nominated Electric Soft Parade and sings ‘Sing it!’ which has a series of associated podcasts.

Joe Samuel is the Director and Musical Director of The Maydays. He is a classically trained pianist and violinist and is one of only a handful of professional improviser musicians in the world. He has directed and played for a baffling array of improv troupes both in the UK and across Europe as well, as playing at IO in Chicago and being the musical director of Improv Festivals in Barcelona, Poland, Romania, Finland, Dublin and of course at the Maydays own festival.
