Combining both your passions
Musical theatre allows you to be a part of a live performance, acting out stories while singing and dancing and entertaining your audience. You will strengthen your communication skills and grow your confidence. Musicals on campus are wildly popular with our student body, but also attract many off campus guests eager to watch the performances. You will study theatre history, playwriting, acting, directing as well as lighting, scenery and costume design. Best of all, we have scholarships available to help you pay for your education while you pursue your dreams.
The C-SC Difference
Your program at C-SC will allow you to participate on stage and behind-the-scenes immediately with NO freshman freeze. You will design mainstage productions, direct one act and full-length plays, work with practicing guest artists, compete in the Kennedy Center’s American College Theatre festival, dramaturg productions and even write and produce your own plays. Our faculty are award-winning in screenwriting, design and directing and have been involved on the national scene. We offer two spaces for productions, a traditional proscenium auditorium and a flexible black box theatre. You will have internship possibilities at The Kennedy Center in Washington DC, Theatre Aspen and Disney World.
