B.F.A. Actor Training Program

Equipping the next generation

The University of Minnesota/Guthrie Theater B.F.A. Actor Training Program combines art and academia to develop the minds, bodies, voices and spirits of our student actors and set them up for professional success.

We start by exploring and performing classical texts and then apply their newfound skills to emerging dramatic forms and contemporary literature drawn from the world repertoire.
