Backstage names Elon's musical theater program among '10 you should know'

Backstage noted the breadth of instruction and support that musical theatre students at Elon receive in highlighting the program. 

Backstage, an industry publication focused on casting calls and career advice for performers, has named Elon University one of its "10 Musical Theater College Programs You Should Know."

The October article offers insight into what performing arts students should consider when selecting a college or university, noting that "even more difficult than choosing a college audition song can be choosing the colleges to audition for — and later attend — whether we're talking musical theater or dance."

The article notes that Elon students "can choose how far they progress in different disciplines based on interest, and master classes are taught on campus by guest artists." Among the features of the program that are highlighted are the wide breadth of performances that Elon's Department of Performing Arts puts on each year, as well as the "business of show" courses that seniors take. 

Many websites and publications have recently and consistently ranked Elon's program among the best in the country — find out more about those recognitions here
