Theater and Music

Through Student Life, MCTC instructors bring Theater Arts and Music to life. These professional educators also hold advanced degrees in the Theater Arts and Music, bringing acting, directing and music to MCTC students. Students may participate in any of these credit or non-credit opportunities. We also welcome the community to participate in theater and music through continuing education.

Theater

If theater is your interest, let the stage be your learning lab. Experience the exhilaration of performing on three different stages––proscenium, thrust stage or black box––as part of the program’s faculty-directed productions each year. MCTC is in the heart of a vibrant theater community that includes multiple stages, including the internationally acclaimed Guthrie Theater. Minneapolis is known as being second to New York in live theater and is the third-largest theater market after New York and Chicago. There are countless opportunities at MCTC and in Minneapolis for acting, directing, designing or going to see productions. We have three Main stage productions each year on campus, where our students creatively collaborations with faculty, community members and artists-in-residence.

Music

If music is your interest, you will find tremendous opportunities to participate in or come and see vocal or instrumental concerts throughout the year. MCTC’s diverse student population is reflected in our global and multicultural approach to music. As an MCTC music student you will may also have the opportunity to participate in the metro area’s many professional and non-professional musical ensembles.
