Combining the best of creativity with community outreach, musical theater at Berklee provides performance and leadership opportunities for singers, dancers, conductors, music directors, writers, composers, arrangers, and project managers. Musical theater programming ranges from contemporary musicals to new works by faculty and student composers and arrangers.
There are several ways for students to get involved with musical theater at Berklee, including cabarets, collaboration with the City Music program, contests, internships, and the Musical Theater Club.
Cabarets: Monthly events at Berklee's Fordham Road facility showcase students' musical prowess.
City Music Collaboration: Connecting Boston and the MetroWest communities, this project includes a jazz-pop musical version of Pinocchio to be performed in the spring of 2014 by 10 Berklee voice students and a four-piece band.
Curtain Up: This concert and songwriting contest features original musical theater songs written and arranged by Berklee students. Find more information here.
Internships: Expand your skills in fields such as performance management and technology, stage management, cabaret coordination, choreography, assistant directing, and designing (props, lights, costumes, etc.).
Musical Theater Club: This entirely student-run club is dedicated to bringing the best of musical theater to Berklee! Leadership opportunities allow individuals to gain hands-on experience. To learn more, sign up for our email list, join us on Facebook, or follow us on Twitter.
