At the intersection of theatre and music is a blank canvas for story. We are created by God to be creative in nature. We learn about each other when we tell stories that matter. Your pathway may lead to Broadway, or it may lead to stages across the country, such as schools where students are taught or churches where faithful followers gather. A musical theatre minor will prepare you to tell stories in a creative way and complements a wide range of majors—from art to communication, and everything in between.
