    6:30 PM EST Acting/Musical Theatre Information Session (virtual)

    Wednesday, October 19, 2022 at 6:30 PM until 7:30 PMEastern Daylight Time

    This information session is designed for talented performing arts students interested in learning more about Penn State's highly competitive BFA degrees in musical theatre and acting. These degrees educate and train talented, self-confident, collaborative, active, and knowledgeable contributors to the professional theatre. This session will allow you to learn about the admissions, pre-screen, and audition processes and tour one of our performance spaces. Hosted by our admissions professional, Shannon Ritter, we hope this comprehensive visit will answer all your questions when applying for the upcoming year. 

    Penn State's School of Theatre also offers a BFA in technical theatre, which includes stage management and design/technology (costume, lighting, scenic, sound and technical direction) as well as a BA in Theatre Studies.  For students interested in both theatre and another major at Penn State, our Bachelor of Arts degree in Theatre Studies allows students the flexibility to incorporate a theatre degree into their other intended area of study.
