Welcome to SIU Musical Theater!

Come join our close but diverse Musical Theater family and learn in a supportive and encouraging environment. We welcome all types and are looking for potential more than a polished final product. Our MT majors are extremely active participating in multiple musicals, plays, and dance concerts each year. With our intimate size we offer personal training, opportunities and mentoring to make you the best singer-dance-actor you can be! Please check out this video (below) to learn more!
