Music and Theatre Certificates

Music Theatre

The Music Theatre Certificate program is offered to Theatre or Music majors only. It is a certificate program designed to offer additional training in the realm of music theatre. It is not meant to serve as conservatory-style training in musical theatre performance but rather allows the Music or Theatre student to further specialize in a field of theatre that continues to grow in popularity.

This certificate program may appeal to students interested in directing for the musical theatre, acting in the musical theatre, music directing in the musical theatre, or even designing for the musical theatre. The Music Theatre Certificate Program accepts Music and Theatre students on an audition-only basis. Auditions will be announced by the Music Theatre Certificate Program administrator. Once accepted into the certificate program, students are expected to participate in the biennial music theatre production as well as the Music Theatre Cabaret.
