The Music Theatre BFA program at UB encompasses the ever-widening spectrum of theatre arts that ranges from performance art to opera and includes Broadway musicals, cabaret, and dance works. Our program embraces all of these forms, including the research and creation of new works of music theatre and the re-envisioning the classics for the twenty-first century. Our goal is to train complete theatre artists, prepared to succeed as multi-faceted professionals in an increasingly competitive and challenging field. As a result, our core curriculum includes classes in acting, music, and dance, with complementary study in music theory, history, technical theatre & design, choreography, and directing. Coursework is reinforced by our numerous performance opportunities, including inventive productions of traditional Broadway shows, and readings and workshops of new works of music theatre in development.
