Musical Theater

Reach the Height of Performance with a B.A. Degree in Musical Theater from Northern Vermont University 

In our musical theater program at NVU-Johnson, every class and assignment is a performance. Through productions, recitals, and intensive training in voice, acting, and dance, you will make your impact on audiences. Our highly collaborative, creative approach will give you the skills and support you need to excel.

Mentored by faculty who are powerful performers themselves, you’ll learn to tell a story using your entire body, including your voice. You will get a broad range of hands-on experience to help you stand out when you start your career: you’ll write and direct, design and build sets, manage the front office, design costumes, learn about lighting and stage blocking, prepare programs, and promote performances.

You’ll learn the business side of the art, too, including how to dress, communicate, and present yourself in interviews and auditions. You will graduate prepared for a career in a wide range of fields, from theater, television, and film to radio, education, and video production.
