Theatre Training

Bachelor of Fine Arts in Musical Theatre

Musical Theatre offers students interdisciplinary academic and creative experiences that prepare them to be working artists in the field of musical theatre. Students develop practical skills in music, dance and acting in conjunction with concentrated work in theory, history and liberal arts. Students must demonstrate continuing progress and are thus evaluated annually through auditions, coursework and production responsibilities. The B.F.A. candidate is expected to develop theatre, vocal and/or dance skills equal to entry-level positions in the profession or as expected for admission into Master of Fine Arts programs.


Admission to this program is by audition only. Auditions are typically held over a weekend in mid-November and also in February of each year. Students audition prior to the freshman year and must display talent and training potential.
