Musical Theatre (B.F.A.)

This BFA program develops your skills as a singer, dancer, and 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.
