Performance opportunities are many.
The Department of Theatre and Drama produces two musicals and six plays a year in its main season, one musical and three plays at the Indiana Festival Theatre in the summer, the IU Broadway Cabaret (a touring musical theatre ensemble), independent projects, and Premiere Musicals: Developing Musical Theatre at Indiana University. (A new-musical workshop blending professional Equity actors with musical theatre students in a three week summer workshop focusing on new works.) A student’s career culminates in a showcase in New York for agents, casting directors, and other professionals in the business. Further opportunities are found in Indiana University’s Jacobs School of Music, which produces at least one light opera or musical a year and is home to The Singing Hoosiers.
