There’s a great opportunity in the upcoming semester (F 2017) for students interested in making musical theater. Please note that there are prerequisites, but prerequisite over-rides may be available for students who have the appropriate skill set. This can be done during the Adjustment period or Drop/Add period after consulting with the instructor.
