Minor in Music Theatre

Strengthen your artistic gifts as you explore your professional performance aspirations.

Have you dreamed about making it big in New York, Hollywood, or Nashville? Have you wondered whether you would put your faith in danger in those environments? Colorado Christian University believes that Christians not only belong in those fields, but should excel in them.

Offered through the School of Music, the Music Theatre minor has a strong performance orientation for the purpose of preparing those with professional performance aspirations. The minor is also useful for students who want to tone and strengthen their artistic gifts for use in schools, local communities and the mission field.

Students in the Music Theatre minor will take courses in voice, stage movement and dance, acting, diction and more. Overall, the minor offers students interested in musical theatre an opportunity to develop the unique skill set required for musical theatre performance. Our purpose is to help you determine your calling and prepare yourself to pursue it with excellence. Theatre Scholarships may also be available for students who audition.

Music Theatre at CCU

In Exodus 35:30-36:2, God called artists by name for the making of the tabernacle in the desert and gifted them with artistic ability and talent. In I Chronicles 9:33, Scripture relates to us the position of temple singers who didn't need to do any other work because they were always on call as singers. God values and calls to artistry those who are gifted in it.

As a follower of Christ, it is your privilege to receive training for your artistic gifts in His purposes. Our desire is to help you strengthen both your artistry and your walk with Christ. If you love God and want to serve Him through performance arts, but aren't content with what the world has to offer, CCU may be just the place for you!
