Wilkes University's Musical Theatre Program...
takes an integrative approach to voice, acting, dance and technical theatre within a liberal arts context.
In addition to weekly private voice lessons...
Wilkes offers numerous performance opportunities throughout the year: four mainstage shows (two of which are musical), faculty-directed black-box shows, student-directed black-box shows, chorus, and numerous dance performances.
The curriculum is designed to create a balanced performer and works to offer the musical theatre student an opportunity to integrate theatre training into a larger educational context.
Our low student : teacher ratio allows a personal approach to study. Students are encouraged to explore, expand and develop the skills and discipline needed in a complex and competitive world.
Our Musical Theatre graduates are successful.
Wilkes University aims to educate the whole person and strives for personal as well as professional success. With a well-appointed facility, a strong curriculum, caring faculty, and a welcoming environment, students find Wilkes a perfect place to develop their talents and uncover some they never knew they had.
Wilkes' Musical Theatre program has been consistently...
recognized by the Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival for Excellence in Directing, Stage Management, Ensemble, Sets, Lights, and Costumes. Students have also attained individual acting honors.
