Prospective students interested in joining SHSU's Musical Theatre Program are required to complete an audition.

At Sam Houston State University, we pride ourselves on training great performers with the ability to sing, act, and dance, making our graduates true triple threats.

The BFA in Musical Theatre is designed to meet the specific needs of musical theatre performers in the industry through classes taught by talented instructors with years of experience.


We recognize the importance the industry places on dance and acting; therefore, we have built strong dance and acting components in to the degree plan for Musical Theatre majors. We emphasize ballet and offer courses in jazz, modern, and tap. Our students participate in acting, directing, design, speech, and auditioning classes, as well as Musical Theatre-specific classes such as History of the American Musical, Musical Theatre Workshop, Voice, and majors-only music courses.


Our relationships with many of the Houston area theatres gives our students the opportunity to enjoy working in their discipline while attending school. Currently, we have internships with Theatre Under the Stars, Stages Repertory Theatre, The Classical Theatre Company, and Texas Repertory Theatre. Our students are able to audition for and secure these positions adding valuable credits to their resumes and experiencing hands on training in the business.
