									Musical Theatre Minor

The Musical Theatre minor is intended to develop proficiency in all three areas of Musical Theatre - singing,
acting and dance – and is open to Performing Arts majors whether their primary field is Music or Theatre Arts.
Interested students must complete an Application (available in the Performing Arts office) no later than Spring
term of their sophomore year and submit it to Jim Giancarlo.

      Students with little or no training in dance technique must complete TA 157, Intro to Musical Theatre
       Dance, before taking required TA 257 Musical Theatre Dance.
      Students with little or no vocal training are advised to begin with MUS 181 Class Voice before taking
       required MUP 170 or MUP 190 (private voice).
      TA 357A and TA 357B (Musical Theatre Workshop) is a two-part sequence and both courses must be
       taken in the same academic year. TA 357A is devoted to the learning and preparation of specific musical
       theatre repertoire; TA 357B continues to develope, stage, choreograph and polish that material,
       culminating in a classroom presentation/performance.
      Musical Theatre Workshop and Auditioning for Musical Theatre should be taken in the second or third
       year, after having taken dance and private voice classes.
