Our Bachelors of Fine Arts in Musical Theatre curriculum is balanced between music, dance, and acting, providing innovative, hands-on experiences to prepare you for a professional career in musical theatre.
From your first year, you will have an opportunity to perform in the musical theatre. We present four main stage productions annually.
With Junior Journey, you’ll have study experience in the theatre in New York City and we have a great track record for graduate school placement—Brandeis, CalArts, Purdue, and Harvard.
Performing in our NYC industry showcase gives you the opportunity to network with top agents and casting directors.
The Florida Southern College campus boasts three fully-equipped performance facilities dedicated to undergraduate performance.
Students may be accepted into the Musical Theatre B.F.A. program only through an audition in their area of expertise.
Musical Theatre auditions are offered throughout the school year on an appointment basis. The prospective student for the Musical Theatre B.F.A. degree should prepare two contrasting songs, 32 bars or 90 seconds each. Please bring a recording of your accompaniment. For the dance portions of the audition come prepared with dance attire and jazz or ballet shoes with light-colored soles.
Scholarships are awarded based on an audition and interview by the theatre faculty. B.F.A. auditions will automatically be considered for scholarship eligibility.
Our Theatre Arts major does not require an audition for entry into the program!
Please note, however, scholarships are only awarded based on auditions and an interview with theatre faculty.
In THE 3120 Musical Theatre Scene Study, musical literature for performance is emphasized. You’ll be exposed to musical theatre styles, composers, literature, and lyricists with the emphasis on performance and vocal style.
