“'Cause a Halloween party's a rad excuse
To put your body through mad abuse
And I might pass out, but it's alright
'Cause I'm Halloween partying hard tonight..."

 
- Be More Chill (the musical)

 

A VERY SCARY MUSICAL is a mashup musical production of creepy, supernatural and horror-themed musical theatre songs, tied together with a scary new narrative developed by the director and cast.

This theatre production course runs in Term 3 and the start of Term 4. It is for SENIOR TEENS 15+ interested in acting and musical theatre (note: there are scary, occult and adult themes).

The course ends in a SCARY (and let's face it, probably hilarious) production on HALLOWEEN!


To get a sense of the tone, please check out Halloween-themed songs from:

Be More Chill (Halloween!)
The Addams Family
Beetlejuice
Carrie
Sweeney Todd: Demon Barber of Fleet Street
American Psycho
Little Shop of Horrors
The Witches of Eastwick
The Rocky Horror Picture Show
Heathers: The Musical
Wicked
Dracula
Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde

Our selection of songs will be guided by the knowledge of tutors and the interests of performers. The director and performers will collaborate on a narrative (short scenes) that ties together each song, so bring your creative ideas on your character!

This course ends in a public theatre production at All Saints Ainslie on HALLOWEEN, 31st OCTOBER, 2024.

Frequently Asked Questions

I don't want to sing a solo. Can I still join the course?

Yes, you can! There are many fun and challenging opportunities to contribute as an actor, dancer and/or singer in ensemble roles. Watch this video from our production of the musical Be More Chill in 2021 - as you can see, we need a huge ensemble! Please note your level of comfort on your enrolment form.

I really want a solo! Will I be guaranteed a solo?

Yes! Our courses are student-centred - designed to extend students and adapt to the ambitions and goals of each performer. If you would like to sing a solo, please note this on your enrolment form. Come to class with your creative ideas!

I am not a good dancer. Do I have to dance?

You do not need to be a trained dancer to join this course; if you are not comfortable with dance then please note this on your enrolment form. However, a basic level of movement and a willingness to participate in basic ensemble dance is required from all performers.

I am a trained dancer. Are there opportunities for me to incorporate my skills?

Yes! Please note on your enrolment form the area/s you are trained in. We will work with you to think of song selections that showcase your talents.

I am under 15. Am I still allowed to enrol?

There are adult themes in these musical songs (including coarse language) so this is recommended as an MA 15+ production. The only exceptions are for continuing Budding Entertainment teenaged students who have completed at least two courses with us at a senior level. We ask that their parent/guardian emails Kirsty Budding to confirm in writing that they give permission: kirsty@buddingentertainment.com
