Musical Theater









What's different about Musical Theater at MIC?


The Musical Theater Program at the Music Institute of Chicago teaches the fundamentals of stage performance through work with musical theater professionals, while fostering creativity and problem-solving skills.  The productions have a Chicago theatre aesthetic - physical, ensemble-based shows presented up clase in our well-equipped black-box theater.  Everyone is encourged to discover and improve their acting, dancing, singing, stagecraft and, in some cases, writing skills.  In addition to the vocal work done with their musical theater ensemble, students are encouraged to study voice privately with MIC's outstanding voice faculty.
