Western Illlinois MT program

I have not been able to find much information about Western Illinois' MT program. I was able to find on the web that the program is really up and coming, especially since a lot of their graduates end up going to Broadway in Chicago. My D recently spent the weekend there and the department staff and students were so gracious and welcoming. She felt very connected to this school and what the program has to offer. I'd like to get more insight if it's out there. Thanks!

    If you pm me I can connect with a mom who had two daughters in this program. Both are working and doing well.

    I agree it is an up and coming program. I posted this on another thread but I have watched their students audition at MidWest Theatre auditions and in the last four years they have become very competitive and very good. I have also hired several of them for our summer stock program and they are well-prepared and well-rounded.

    That is wonderful. My D is going there next week for a day in the life of... She gets to hang with all the theatre kids, take classes and see their fall musical. She is so excited.
