Musical Theatre is an art form that calls for the training of "The Triple Threat"- the performer with ability as an actor, singer, and dancer.

Our new Musical Theatre major features an industry-focused curriculum while maintaining the freedom and flexibility of a Bachelor of Arts program.  Musical Theatre majors will receive private voice lessons each semester, progressive dance classes, and specialized musical theatre techniques classes such as Vocal Styles & Repertoire, Acting the Song, and Professional Preparation. At FLC, you will receive an education with a broad and widely applicable foundation. Musical Theatre is also offered as a minor, should your primary focus lie elsewhere.
