Our musical theatre program prepares you to work as a professional artist. You’ll apply your classroom lessons onstage—early and often—by auditioning every term you’re here, and performing in our main stage productions from the very first. Our faculty of internationally recognized teaching artists and scholars direct, act, teach, and choreograph in top regional theatres, schools, and conferences internationally. Our graduates average 70–85 percent theatrical employment within six months of graduation, though most work in professional summer theatres even before they graduate.
