Want More Performance Opportunities?

Students at SIUE also take advantage of performance opportunities in operas, operettas, plays, vocal ensembles, dance concerts, and student organizations.  In addition, SIUE is 25 minutes from downtown St. Louis, a thriving artistic community!

SIUE Summer Showbiz

Musical Theatre is alive at SIUE in the summer as well!  Every summer SIUE Summer Showbiz produces professionally cast musicals under the direction of SIUE Theatre, Dance, and Music Faculty.  Another great reason to consider SIUE for your Musical Theatre future!
