The strength of our programs is the rigorous career focused training and professional partnerships that enable our students to earn professional credits while in school. Average Avila theatre students earn three professional credits per year. Our students value the small class sizes of our university, one-on-one attention from faculty, and the freedom to explore their craft. Additionally, we just finished an $8 million expansion of our spaces which includes a new music hall, two dedicated rehearsal spaces, a new 4800sqft BlackBox, and 4000sqft scene shop. Our spaces equip students with the skills they need to have a long career in the theatre.
