BFA ’22

Theater - Musical Theater (BFA)

Jack landed the lead role in the national tour of Jesus Christ Superstar just months after graduating.

In this day and age, artistic agency and individuality is of high value on stage, in the studio and in the audition room. UArts, in my opinion, is on the cutting edge of our industry. Rather than producing the cookie-cutter performer, the Brind School embraces each performer as they are and finds the best way for YOU to succeed. Being able to explore outside my major was crucial, and my experience with Music Business, Entrepreneurship and Technology, as well as Musical Theater, was pivotal in giving me a voice and helping me stand out. Thanks to UArts, I had the confidence to book my first big gig, and have the range as an artist to stay both consistently employed and artistically fulfilled.
