‘Musical’ Screenplays

One of the ‘Primary Genres.’

There are 13 ‘Primary Genres’ we’re all familiar with. Here’s one of them, explained.

Musical films weave songs or musical numbers into the narrative to progress the story or further develop the characters. Musicals are often tied to romance films but are not limited to that genre. Musical movies involve big stage-like productions, integrating necessary premises or character elements into the sequences.


The Wizard of Oz (1939) and West Side Story (1961) are classic examples of the musical movie genre.
