Grad cultivates his craft for a life on stage - and beyond

MacEwan University's Theatre Arts program is a stimulating, intensive actor-training program for those who are passionate about musical theatre. It is a program that will train you to be a versatile, self-sufficient artist.

Become a triple threat

Over the last 30 years, our Theatre Arts program has earned a reputation for its quality and depth — producing triple threats: passionate actors who sing and dance. Our goal is to help you explore the boundaries of your own creative potential and to prepare you for any professional opportunity. You will leave our program with an honest view of yourself as an actor, as well as marketable skills for a difficult and demanding industry.

Intense. Creative. Active.

Bring your energy and talent to MacEwan University's Centre for the Arts and Communications campus in west Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.  Learn in a creative, supportive environment. In our Theatre Arts program you will study:

  • acting, singing and dance technique
  • voice and speech for the stage
  • music theory and ear training
  • musical theatre repertoire
  • theatre history and play analysis
  • audition technique
  • performance

Act. Sing. Dance.

At MacEwan University, you learn by doing. Theatre Arts is a full-time musical theatre actor-training program taught in a conservatory atmosphere. You will:
