Welcome from the Coordinator

As Coordinator of the Musical Theatre program at Montclair State University, I am delighted to introduce you to a unique educational opportunity.

Musical Theatre at Montclair is a joint venture of the John J. Cali School of Music andDepartment of Theatre and Dance. Together we have applied the best of our resources to develop an intensive course of study and performance applications which we believe are of equal importance to your development.

Our curriculum offers strong pre-professional training geared for the musical theatre business as it is reflected today. And make no mistake – musical theatreis a business – one for which our majors are fully prepared. Our students and alumni, in fact, are working in the business – currently represented on Broadway and in national and international tours. They also work in major regional theatres as well as cruise lines, even theme parks.

I hope I have sparked an interest in our program, as I would look forward to meeting you in person. Please take the time to look over our information including curriculum, facilities, performance opportunities, and faculty; as well as the steps for preparing to audition. We feel that your education at Montclair would be just the first step towards a rewarding journey. At Montclair State, our goal is your success.
