Our faculty are working professionals, and are able to provide quality instruction, mentorship, and real-world connections for students to build a career in the theatre and entertainment industry.

We offer concentrations in performance, design, technical disciplines, and stage and production management through our BFA in Theatre. We also offer musical theatre performance through our BFA in Musical Theatre
Our curriculum for both BFA’s was recently updated to prepare students for the opportunities available in the world of entertainment today.
We typically do two mainstage musicals and two mainstage plays per year. Freshmen have the opportunity to gain performance and production experience in their first semester!
