Whether you are interested in performing for stage or screen, the regionally recognized Asbury University Theatre and Cinema Performance program offers opportunities for you to grow and learn. This program recognizes the similar yet diverse skills necessary to succeed on the stage and onscreen. Acting for stage requires and energy and exaggeration of movement that appears ridiculous on the screen. By studying both stage and screen acting, TCP students have a greater understanding of their art as well as greater marketability after graduation. Students who have an acting emphasis are given the opportunity to act in front of the camera as well as on stage. Students not only learn about acting but also learn the fundamentals in screenwriting, directing, and producing. One of the main things that this program strives for is that students have opportunities to gain experience and confidence in the industry. A musical theatre emphasis is geared more for those who are interested in combining music, songs, spoke dialogue, and dance all on one stage. The students in this emphasis are given the opportunity to participate in the musicals that are put on campus along with some in the community. This program offers the training, resources, and experiences to prepare students for a variety of careers in music, theatre, and related fields.
