Musical Theatre

The minor in Musical Theatre is for students who wish to pursue two great arts: music and theatre. Whether it’s crooning into a microphone, tickling the black and white keys, dancing in front of a painted set, or conducting a 100-piece orchestra, the love for musical theatre is one that combines a wide array of talent and skill. 

Students receive solid course instruction and direction, as well as numerous opportunities for implementing stagecraft skills — onstage and off. Each semester, students study acting, directing, dramatic literature, music as well as technical theatre and stagecraft. Olivet offers an ideal combination of artistic freedom and professional nurturing in a Christian environment.

Roles in main stage productions are by audition, though many other performance opportunities are offered. ONU Broadway Revue, Spoons for Forks improvisational group, the 24-Hour Theatre and summer productions are a few highlights of the year.
