The new Music Theatre program will provide students with theoretical and practical training both in the three core disciplines of acting, singing and dancing, and also in the study of music theatre as a liberal arts subject. Industry-focused training through a 2-year set curriculum at St. Lawrence College (Brockville) includes personalized instruction and coaching, group creative work, and basic music literacy which will then be complemented by a more interdisciplinary liberal arts approach in the final two years at Queen’s. This demanding “triple threat” program will allow students to hone their skills by performing in front of audiences, in studio, main stage productions and in unique productions where students learn to create and produce original theatrical pieces. Students will also receive mentoring from faculty and guest industry professionals to become competent and job-ready for a competitive and rapidly-changing industry. The program thus will offer students a complementary set of outcomes that combine college and university strengths, disciplinary and interdisciplinary skill sets, and creative and critical modes of communication.
