The Opera/Music Theatre Program provides an encouraging atmosphere for all who have an interest in performing music theatre on the stage. Music and Theatre majors participate in the program. There are full productions of standard and newer shows each year and a training workshop each semester. Applied Music majors take classes in the core curriculum and then address this Concentration with ensembles and electives that relate to opera, music theatre and language/diction.

Spring Awakening is a rock musical set in 1891 where the adults hold all the cards. The students are asking questions about the mysteries of sexuality and the worries of being a social outcast.
This show is a raucous youthful rebellion that shows students navigating self-discovery.

Opera and Musical Theatre Scenes is student-centered, with the students choosing the songs and writing all of the dialogue.
It's amazing how much is learned, even among those who have been in many shows before! In Musical Theatre Scenes Workshop students learn from the ground up, about the form of a show, the props and costumes, the way that dialogue has to work and then how to use their speaking and singing voices to communicate.
