What is acting?
With integrated studies in music, dance, and theatre, the bachelor of fine arts in musical theatre offers the best combination of theoretical foundation courses with practical performance opportunities. Students in the BFA program will combine exceptional training with a selected core of liberal arts courses designed to add historical context and insight into their creative choices. Our curriculum also includes frequent opportunities to view professional productions in Chicago, Madison, or Milwaukee as well as an optional semester of study at Regents College in London. The bachelor of fine arts in musical theatre is ideally suited for students whose goal is to pursue a professional performance career.
Majors are required to audition for every main-stage production and are encouraged to audition for as many Three Penny and Artist's Assemble Theater productions as their schedules will allow. Admittance to the program is by audition and must coincide with acceptance into the university.
