Refine your talent, show it off, and launch your career.

Program Overview

Become a "triple threat"

Sheridan's new Honours Bachelor of Music Theatre Performance gives students theoretical and practical training in three core disciplines of acting, singing and dance through a comprehensive and holistic approach that will prepare you to perform in an international landscape.

Personal attention

Sheridan is Canada's best-known musical theatre school, so our students get more attention—from audiences and performing arts industry recruiters. You'll be held to high standards in this rigorous musical theatre program, but you'll refine your talent while performing in professional surroundings before paying customers.

No business like show business

No other performing arts school offers Sheridan's degree of professionalism. You'll have classes in acting, singing and dancing five days a week, plus weekly one-on-one tutorials with faculty in acting and singing. In addition to studio work, you'll get instruction in scriptwriting, music theory and music theatre history.

Additional information

A special focus on business and entrepreneurial skills prepares graduates to assume leadership roles in the entertainment industry or to create their own production companies.

You'll enjoy:

  • Personalized instruction and coaching in acting, singing and dancing, with plenty of face time with instructors.
  • Professional guidance to polish your auditioning skills and work ethic.
  • Opportunities to showcase your performing arts talent in high-profile settings.

This degree program offers tremendous challenges and rewards — including a career path that might lead you to stages in Toronto, Broadway, London and beyond.

All that hard work will pay off when you take the stage. The musical theatre program puts on six musicals a year in Theatre Sheridan at the Trafalgar Road Campus in Oakville, as well as a number of theatrical productions in the Studio Theatre. In addition, every student has individual performances in acting, dance and commercial singing.

By the time you earn your Music Theatre Performance degree you’ll be a genuine “triple threat”—acting, singing and dancing—with solid audition skills and a list of performing credits. And you might already have a name and a reputation among professional artistic directors and recruiters.

Upon graduation, most often over 80% immediately find representation by major agents and/or contractual employment, often in major Toronto, West End and Broadway commercial resident productions or national tours of such musicals as Jesus Christ Superstar, Spring Awakening, Rock of Ages, American Idiot, West Side Story, Mary Poppins, Jersey Boys, Les Misérables, Rent, Tommy, Beauty and the Beast, Mamma Mia! and Phantom of the Opera.

Sheridan Music Theatre performing arts classes are held at Sheridan's Trafalgar Road Campus, Oakville, Ontario.
