MANY THINGS are special about the musical theatre at CCM. Perhaps the most special are the performers who graduate from our program: men and women well grounded in the demanding techniques of musical theatre—imaginative and creative, and capable of bringing their intellectual and artistic gifts to bear on the problems of the art.
Our graduates can think and do, can explore their art in depth, and communicate their intentions in fluid and expressive ways. Musical Theatre demands a high level of commitment from our students. Discipline and professionalism are the essential components of this program. Hours spent in the classroom, the studio and the rehearsal room are long and grueling, but the rewards are great.
The program has a limited enrollment so that it can provide the individualized attention that this area demands. Today, a performer wishing to pursue a career in musical theatre should be able to sing and dance and act with technical mastery and craft. And that is the minimum requirement!
