Musical Theatre (B.F.A.)

This BFA program develops your skills as an actor through experiences in the classroom and performance laboratory.

In recent years our BFA students have participated in an average of six productions a year. You'll draw experience from a season that includes at least four musicals and four weekends of musical theatre cabarets per year, as well as other faculty- and student-directed productions.
