The BA in Theatre is a generalist degree with courses in all areas of theatre. The BA-Musical Theatre concentration and the BFA concentrations offer areas of in-depth study in acting, design and technical production, and musical theatre. Admission to the BA (Musical Theatre concentration only) and BFA programs are by audition/interview only. We have an active production season, producing six full-length plays and three musicals a year, in addition to many informal performances.

The Dance program‘s greatest strength is the diversity of classes offered: in addition to virtuosic training in ballet, contemporary dance and jazz, students are offered a wide range of professional skills including choreography, dance for the camera, pedagogy, lighting and sound design, and anatomy. With this breadth of knowledge students are well placed to achieve a sustainable future in dance, contributing as skilled artists and global citizens.
