General Information

Musical Theatre Workshop is designed to be a practical application in the basic skills of acting, movement, singing, stagecraft, makeup, musical theatre directing and production. Membership is by audition or invitation. OBU musical theatre productions are fully-staged and costumed productions with orchestral accompaniment. Jones Performing Arts Center serves as performance venue for these productions, and its state of the art technical capacity is ideal for a highly professional collaborative effort between the division of music and department of theatre arts. Annual perfomances occur the third full weekend in April.
