The School

Welcome!  As the only School of Musical Theatre in the country, our goal is to provide students the tools for success both on stage and off. We are recruiting the top 1% of talented high school seniors for our next freshman class.  With a Bachelor of Fine Arts (B.F.A.) in Musical Theatre Performance, we offer conservatory-style training and a dynamic university education.

Bring your passion and grow beyond your expectations. Our self-imposed enrollment cap of 50 total majors insures individual development. Alumni are performing on Broadway, in National tours, at Regional theatres and in Europe and Asia, demonstrating that this is one of America's premiere programs.

Admission to the School involves a required On-Campus Callback Audition and Admission to the University of Oklahoma. OU is an equal opportunity institution, reflecting the rich cultural and racial diversity of our country. Should you have questions, please contact us at [email protected].
