Graduate College Brown Bag Lecture Series

Wednesday, November 7, 2012 - 6:00 am to 6:50 am

Rebecca Burkhardt and Cynthia Goatley began their work on a musical, “Writing Just Ann, A Musical about the Life and Times of Former Governor of Texas, Ann Richards,” in 2008. Spending two summers and a fall in Austin allowed Burkhardt and Goatley to gather volumes of material. In order to condense this large amount of material into a workable size for a musical theatre piece, they began by drawing on sketch paper clusters of songs and scenes for the musical. A first draft of the piece was read and sung in May by students, faculty and community members, so the authors could hear what needed to be revised. A second draft is now in progress.
