Musical Theatre at NNU is designed to develop theatre artists among changing trends in the arts and prepare students by putting the means for their success in their own hands. NNU’s Musical Theatre faculty have over 25 years of experience as both artists and educators who keep up with changing trends in theatre and adjust the curriculum to meet those changes.

Musical Theatre students will learn:
With NNU’s small class sizes, students receive personalized attention, crafting a path through the Musical Theatre degree program to best fit their strength, needs and desired outcomes with the help of experienced faculty.
At NNU, we believe that students develop best when they are well-rounded. We work hard to ensure that students can be involved in many ways around campus. A good theatre artist experiences life in its fullness, so we encourage student involvement in activities outside of the theatre program and work to coordinate so students can manage that involvement.
Getting a degree in Musical Theatre opens up your career opportunities to a variety of options. Within the theatre field, you can become a performer, director, producer, choreographer, arts manager, theatre teacher, technician (sets, lights, costumes, props, etc.) and so much more! Training in the theatrical arts teaches the soft skills many employers are looking for but are difficult to teach. Each class and activity you participate in will pay off in dividends far beyond theatre.

I believe theatre can be a force for good in the world, and I am beyond thrilled that NNU has decided to add the Musical Theatre program to its academic degree offerings! It's obviously a joy to watch a good dance number or a slapstick comedy, but theatre holds up a mirror to our lives that can do so much more than "entertain." Theatre allows us to sit with a story and wrestle with the ways our faith asks us to empathize and interact with the world. Participating in theatre at NNU was an incredible way for me to explore my convictions and I can't wait for the next generation of students to have the same opportunity!
