Musical Theatre Ensemble & Studio
The Musical Theatre Ensemble is a select group of students who excel in and are committed to the musical theatre. The ultimate performer in this group is the triple threat, having skills in all three areas—vocals, dance, and acting and a strong desire and potential for professional casting. Priority is also given to the developing musical theatre professional and though there is no set number for this group, an average number is 16 with a maximum number of 20. Those cast in the MTE perform solos, group and ensemble pieces at various University and community events as well as play a significant role in recruiting.
The Musical Theatre Studio is a part of the ensemble’s training and development, with individual and group sessions related to repertoire, vocal-dance-acting development as well as the business of theatre and the professional world. All MTE cast members are expected to participate fully in the work of MT Studio.
