Webster University/Muny- A Win-Win Deal

Webster University and the Muny announced the establishment of a new partnership that will blend the renowned outdoor theatre with Webster’s Conservatory of Theatre Arts.

The partnership will include the sharing of resources and opportunities to develop and train performers and production staff for careers in American musical theatre through internships at the Muny.

Webster’s musical theatre performance students will participate in master classes offered by Muny choreographers and directors and in workshop development projects for future seasons. They also will audition and be selected for Muny chorus opportunities. Conservatory production students with majors in design, production support and stage management will be selected through interviews and portfolio reviews for the internships at the Muny to assist with season planning in casting, scenic and costume design and production operations.

Beth Stroble, Webster’s president and Dennis Reagan, Muny’s president and CEO are excited about this first ever cooperative partnership between a professional theatrical organization and a University theatre program.
