My daughter is currently attending the two year musical theatre program at Casper College in Wyoming,(Great program, wonderful faculty & facilities. It's not CMU, Michigan or NYU. However, they don't market themselves as such. My daughter is O.K. with that & is extremely happy with the program.)
To get back on track, upon graduation my daughter plans on transferring to a musical theatre program at a four year college/university for her Bachelor's Degree in Musical Theatre. My daughter is six feet tall & her weight is roughly proportional to her height,(she could probably afford to lose 20 lbs.) My wife & I have had angoing dialogue about which four year MT Programs my daughter should consider applying to for transfer. One school we mentioned he had discouraged because he felt that our daughter wouldn't get cast in productions there because of her atypical body type,(based on an experience with a previous student that had a similar body type to my daughter that he had transfer to said institution & wasn't cast in any of that schools productions.)
Have any of your kids felt discriminated against regarding casting decisions at the program they are attending. Are there any programs that you feel are good at being accepting of all body types & any schools that you folks would recommend avoiding?
