Do you wish you could continue to be involved in musical theater after high school, while also pursuing other interests and career goals (on or off the stage)? Our unique musical theater minor in an intimate liberal arts environment is just for you, perfectly complementing other programs of study and tailored for you with several different tracks, depending on your major.
In addition to taking dance, voice and acting classes, you’ll gain hands-on opportunities to apply technical and artistic skills learned in a campus musical or opera production every year.
And when you participate in college as a performer, stage manager, director or choreographer, you will be learning high-demand job skills that will serve you well no matter what you do after you graduate. These include working on a team, problem-solving and effective communication.
