Join Sandy Shaner as she takes you on a musical theater journey to explore the strange world of Dr. Dolittle. Learn the juxtaposition between the serious actor and the fantastical elements of creating characters that are non-human. Work on dialects, projection, character analysis as well as singing and dancing skills. This class will put together a scene from Dr. Dolittle and will learn the vocals and dance parts for the song, "Talk to the Animals".
