The Musical Theater Major: Bringing Speech, Movement, and Music Together

Get Into the best Musical Theater Program for You

Musical theater is the crossroads of the spoken word, expressive movement, and a musical artistry focused on setting the scene through song. The characteristics of people involved with musical theater all serve a common goal of helping to bridge the gap between these disciplines.

Aspiring performers who want to lend their energy and skills to the stage have many outlets. Dance ensembles, acting workshops, and musical productions of new and theatrical classics need singers, actors, and dancers to lead the story. Every aspect of musical theater has some number of passionate performers and producers behind it.

Producing musical theater requires a multifaceted and creative individual with an understanding of the multiple artistic worlds of theater. Producers and directors are the architects of immersive stories towed along with expressive music and acting.

Through a rigorous exploration of the student’s interests, career aspirations, and enrichment goals, we develop an individualized preparatory program of mock musical theater auditions, portfolio development, and admissions interview strategies with Steve Lipman, former head of admissions at Berklee College of Music.

Our commitment to one-on-one support and guiding students through the admissions process has launched hundreds of fruitful educational journeys.

Finding the right school for you

 

At the end of our preparatory program, we develop a personalized list of schools the student should apply to based on several factors:

  • Interest - What aspects of musical theater inspire the student?
  • Skill Level - Our recommendations aim to be constructive environments where the student in question will thrive.
  • Career Prospects - What does the student want to do with their musical theater degree? Where a school is located and opportunities for performance are all factors in identifying the right environment for success.
