Music Theatre Alumni

In addition to on-campus production experience, the majority of Elon students graduate with professional credits on their resumes due to summer regional theatre work, internships and a wide variety of relevant experiences. Soon after graduation, Elon students are working on Broadway, National Television Shows and Commercials, International and National Tours, Movies, Equity Regional Theatres, Disney, and a variety of cruises. Highlighted below are a few examples of the work of our alumni during the current and past season.

Congratulations to the Elon Music Theatre Class of 2016 on all of their successes only months after graduation! Graduates of MT 2015 and 2016 have joined the Broadway casts of “A Bronx Tale” and “Beautiful: The Carole King Musical;” joined the National Tours of "Beautiful," “Bullets Over Broadway,” “Cinderella,” “Fame,” "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat," "The Lion King," “Mamma Mia!,” "Ragtime,” and “The Sound of Music”; performed Off-Broadway in “Fiorello;” signed with prestigious agencies like DGRW, BRS/Gage, Harden-Curtis, MSA, Avalon Artists, The Mine, and more; joined productions on Disney Cruise Line, Norwegian Cruise Line, Carnival Cruise Line, Royal Caribbean, and Viking Cruise Line; and performed regionally all over the country at theatres like The MUNY, Pittsburgh CLO, Flat Rock Playhouse, Bucks County Playhouse, and The New York Musical Theatre Festival, among many other venues.
