The Alan Menken Master Class is currently full,  but limited seats will become available at the venue 10-15 minutes prior to the program.

Many of us can name Alan Menken’s iconic music from the screen and stage – songs from “The Little Mermaid,” “Beauty and the Beast,” “Aladdin,” “Tangled,” “Hercules,” “Little Shop of Horrors,” “Pocahontas” (the list goes on…) have become the soundtracks of our lives. Now you can join, listen, and learn during this rare opportunity to see one of the most prolific artists of our time in action! Attendees will learn performance and songwriting secrets from the eight-time Academy Award winner, whose legendary work was instrumental in ushering in a golden age for musical theater.

Alan Menken and Broadway Stars will perform with the National Symphony Orchestra at 8 p.m. on the Mainstage.
