Theater is an exciting venue for singers, offering a wide variety of opportunities. Music in theater can take many forms, including opera and Broadway musicals, but the unifying factor is always that a story is told utilizing singing and acting. Singers particularly enjoy this outlet for the expression of a wide range of emotions they might not find in any other genre. Since a story is usually the central focus of theatrical singing, the singer needs to be an actor as well, with an ability to portray a character. Singing in live theater requires talent, stage presence, physical stamina, energy, and a particular set of skills that can be studied and practiced.
