Musical Theatre

Director: Barbara Murray

The musical theatre minor offers experience and training in music, theatre, and dance as well as aspects of the visual arts and literature. Musical theatre is prominent in America as art, entertainment, social commentary, and civic engagement; it therefore plays a part in Jesuit education of the whole person for the service of others. The objectives of this program include entry-level proficiency for a career in performance, enhancement in teaching, or further training in graduate school; audition techniques; performance of acting, singing, and theatrical dance; and knowledge of the cultural history and various forms of musical theatre. The student may pursue and declare one of two tracks: American musical theatre or lyric theatre (opera/operetta).
