The (fully-licensed) Musical Theatre Department of Vienna Conservatory of Mag. Eva Maria Schmid was founded in the year 2000. We currently have around 30 lectureres and professors. The following facilities are available to our students: rehearsal stages; a rehearsal and recording studio; ballet and dance studios; a newly-renovated theater ("theater im ersten stock"); tuition rooms; practice rooms; changing rooms and showers.
The Musical Theatre course lasts 8 semesters (4 years) and students graduate with a governmentally approved Artistic Diploma upon completion of their course. As a private institution with public status, our study certificates and diplomas are granted equal recognition to those issued by state-run colleges and universities.
In order to enrol as a student, you must first pass a preliminary entrance exam. For this exam you must prepare:
• 1 ballad
• 1 up-tempo song
• 1 monologue of your choice
Dance and improvisational skills are also tested – so please bring along some dancewear! You can find the next available entrance exam appointments under "News".
The Musical Theatre Department places great value on practical training and on giving students various opportunities to gather on-stage experience. A variety of productions have been staged up to now, including WILD CHRISTMAS, ANATEVKA, MY FAIR LADY, LUCKY STIFF, FAMILY CHRISTMAS, CHICAGO, the revival show A NEW WILD CHRISTMAS and HEUT ABEND TANZT LYSISTRATE.
