Musical Theatre

Our Bachelor of Fine Arts in Musical Theatre will help you perfect your technique, encourage your creative spirit and give you a chance to shine. Our faculty share decades of real-world stage experience and will train you to become a true “triple threat.”

Our fresh, cutting-edge curriculum will help you build skills in voice production, technique and interpretation, musicianship, sight-singing, acting and movement, and various styles of dance including ballet, modern, tap, jazz and period. Our curriculum is designed to prepare you to work professionally or successfully advance into graduate programs, preparing you for a comprehensive career in the performing arts. Students work on their craft while remaining rooted in a liberal arts education—which is essential for success in the business today.

Musical theatre is the best of both worlds at YHC. Our students are active in both the Music and Theatre departments. Our students collaborate across disciplines, creating an awareness of all facets of the field. The departments within the division—and across campus—work together so you get consistent training and continued support to hone your craft.

Theatre Young Harris produces Mainstage, Studio and Second Season shows, including at least two fully produced musicals each year. Musical theatre students take part in student recitals and vocal juries. You’re also encouraged to participate in vocal ensembles, such as the Young Harris College Choir and a cappella groups Southern Harmony and the Compulsive Lyres, as well as Alpha Psi Omega, Guerilla Theatre and Accapalooza. 

We offer competitive scholarships to students who major in musical theatre.
