The Musical Theatre Major

At Marietta College

After completing an audition and being accepted into the program, students embark on a journey to build a strong foundation of skills in theatre, music and dance. At Marietta College, every production season of musicals, plays and festivals is designed around the students to ensure they have many opportunities to apply their growing knowledge and skills. Classic and modern musicals and operas with diverse styles and staging are performed so students can refine all aspects of their craft and be prepared for a variety of professional roles.

Talented and dedicated faculty help students develop all of the abilities needed to thrive as musical theatre actors, from physical training and vocal techniques to soft skills like self-marketing. Students also complete a theatre internship to practice their expertise professionally and then culminate their Marietta College education with a capstone project to demonstrate mastery of theatrical skills.
