I just thought I'd add a bit of info on this AMAZING program! I am currently a Freshman MT major at Webster Univesity's Conservatory of Theatre Arts! As it says in the name Webster is a conservatory BFA program. They offer degrees in both MT and Acting and both are trully phenomenal programs! What really captured my attention aside from the notable alumni and AMAZING faculty was the emphasis and methods in acting! Webster really pushes each student to discover themselves and eachother. They teach us how to be smart, thoughtful, and HEALTHY actors! On top of the Musical Theatre training, we all recieve extensive training in Shakespeare, Commedia Dell'Arte, nuetral Mask, and many many more! They really encourage us to really explore all areas and genres of the wonderful world of theatre! Webster also has great relationships and affiliations with famous theatres like the St.Louis Repertory Theatre and The MUNY, current students often gets cast at both theatres!
I hope this post will inspire a lot of you talented to folks to audition this coming year. If you are looking for a program that will challenge you artistically and intellectually, then this is the place to be!
If any of you have any further questions please don't hesitate to ask me!
