The overture is playing, and the curtain is rising on your future!
Coming to Florida Southern in Fall 2013, is a new, innovative Musical Theatre program designed to provide you with in-depth, hands-on experiences that will prepare you for a professional career in musical theatre.
Doing is learning, which is why we guarantee you an active, engaged learning, and highly-involved curriculum. From your first year through senior year, you’ll play a leading role as an active participant in the experiential process both in the classroom and on stage.
Engaged learning is at the heart of Florida Southern’s distinctive approach to education. The philosophy is that you learn most effectively by doing.
Musical theatre is a performance medium—at FSC you will enjoy small, personalized classes in music, theatre, and dance, including private voice study. Your faculty will mentor, guide and tailor your individualized path to elevate your specific talents and interests. The opportunities offered allow you to gain exciting on-stage experience, many times in-front of large public audiences.
