A program for aspiring actors, singers, dancers, designers, stage managers, technical directors, or teachers.
The theatre and music theatre department at Viterbo prepares students for professional employment as theatre artists, educators, and administrators by providing an environment in which students develop their creative potential through rigorous classroom and production experiences. Our programs combine intensive conservatory-like training with a comprehensive liberal arts education. Students benefit from an ongoing visiting artist series that allows them to work with and alongside industry professionals, and participate in free master classes and workshops. The department stages five fully produced shows a year, which ensures students are actively involved with hands-on experiences from the very start. Exclusively focused on the undergraduate, faculty cultivate the individual talent in each student to prepare them to become a leader in the next generation of innovative theatre artists. A selective admissions process, together with talented faculty and guest artist collaboration, draws top talent from across the nation. You will find our alumni working on Broadway, for international production companies, on national tours, and in regional theatres.
