    @sbc you are correct neither school has a true MT program. This probably should be over on the drama forum.

    There are a lot of future MTs who look at both of these programs. Graduates from both programs do find success in both straight acting and musicals If these programs are of interest to you but you want to study MT, it would be important to be aware of what training and curriculum each program providesI. But it is an interesting discussion for us all to hear!

    @sbc, Juilliard, UNCSA, and most UK conservatories (except for RCS) do not train MT separately from straight acting. They view it as training the 'whole actor.' LAMDA trains for acting on stage, acting on film, voiceovers/radio, and MT. MT is viewed more as straight acting with singing, so a subset of acting on stage. For MT, they do private/semi-private voice lessons, singing, dance. They have at least one MT performance per year. However, it is not targeted to MT as many BFA MT programs are, particularly in dance training (e.g. no ballet, tap etc).

    Well I am a real person and not big on social media such as these ... but after surgery I was bored and thought what the heck.... sometimes something to think about comes out of a random thought. Just because I haven't posted in more than 2 years - I don't live and die by my phone or any advice. Sorry to disappoint

    @mommajing Up at the far right of the page to the right of your name is an earth and next to that is a little inbox icon. Click on that and it should pop up with an option that says new message. Click on that and then put in the screen name of the person you are messaging and your note. Hope this helps.

    @mommajing- my daughter is a student at UNCSA so it is info from her about this year and last. Additionally the faculty will tell you straight up that they generally have 75% or more of the senior drama students signed prior to graduation. Feel free to message me any questions you have.
