15 MINUTE MUSICAL SCHEDULE OVERVIEW HAND-OUT


TO ACCOMPANY THE: ADAPTATION – PART 3 ASSIGNMENT

The 15 Minute Musicals will be upon us before you know it!  There will be LOTS more info coming next month, but in preparation, you should be looking VERY CLOSELY at the schedule overview below.  This overview will tell you when your attendance is REQUIRED (live or streaming live) and when to prepare for the heaviest writing periods with your collaborators to get your three drafts of your musical completed.

***PLEASE TAKE THIS SCHEDULE VERY SERIOUSLY.  You really need to reserve the required days and block out lots of time during the heavy writing periods.  If you don’t think you manage this, you should alert us right away so we can discuss whether or not you will be able to participate in the 15 Minute Musicals. ***
