Majoring in Musical Theatre requires grit, stamina and a whole lot of passion. On top of 8 AM ballet classes, nonstop rehearsal and constant meet-and-greets with actors, you gain an immense amount of discipline and confidence that never leaves.

Being an M.T. major is no joke. After years of giving 110 percent to everything you do, the real world looks like a piece of cake. And no matter where life takes you, your time at drama school remains an intricate part of who you are.

It’s true that musical theatre peeps were born to stand out, but at the end of the day we secretly love it. It’s what makes us special and unique! Clearly there is a common thread uniting us all, and here is what that life looks like. Right?!
