  • An understanding of the importance and impact of the American Musical Theater in addressing important historical and contemporary social issues.
  • Performance opportunities that encourage students to apply skills developed in studio classes.
  • Master classes and workshops that bring students in direct contact with leading musical theater professionals working locally and nationally
  • Educational, internship and networking experiences that extend beyond the University of Washington’s campus and introduce students to the range of career opportunities within the Musical Theater industry.
