"If you're looking for an excellent, comprehensive, and nurturing place to work at your craft, with people who are as passionate as you are about their work, come to ESPA. Every time I teach, I feel more excited about the theater because I am so moved and inspired by the students." - Randy Graff, ESPA instructor
A musical is only as good as its libretto, the piece that marries the plot and character development with musical composition. This 10-week class tackles the techniques of plot structure, story development, and adaptation, as well as how to write for various musical genres such as pop, rock, and musical theater.
