This degree program offers tremendous challenges and rewards — including a career path that might lead you to stages in Toronto, Broadway, London and beyond.
All that hard work will pay off when you take the stage. The musical theatre program puts on six musicals a year in Theatre Sheridan at the Trafalgar Road Campus in Oakville, as well as a number of theatrical productions in the Studio Theatre. In addition, every student has individual performances in acting, dance and commercial singing.
By the time you earn your Music Theatre Performance degree you’ll be a genuine “triple threat”—acting, singing and dancing—with solid audition skills and a list of performing credits. And you might already have a name and a reputation among professional artistic directors and recruiters.
