The University of Minnesota/Guthrie Theater B.F.A. Actor Training Program is dedicated to developing the mind, body, voice and spirit of the actor/artist/scholar. We provide our students with a variety of skills essential to realize the dynamics of performing text of classical stature. The skills acquired during the exploration of classic texts will be applied to contemporary literature drawn from the world repertoire, as well as emerging dramatic forms. Our students are devoted to the pursuit of academic and creative study. We cultivate the actor, artist and scholar by providing a unique curriculum rooted in four guiding principles:
- An expansive liberal arts education.
- An intensive studio training curriculum which is committed to the integration of voice, movement and acting within a wide range of styles.
- An eclectic performing arts experience, with a focus on live theater.
- A dynamic partnership between the Guthrie Theater and the University of Minnesota.
We are dedicated to:
- Fostering the principles of collaboration.
- Developing the art of ensemble performance.
- Honoring the integrity of the artistic process.
- Inspiring the spirit of generosity towards the creative process, fellow artists and the audience.
Annual auditions for this highly selective program, are held in Minnesota as well as selected sites such as New York, Houston, Chicago and San Francisco.
