Become a polished talent

While earning your “cred” at USM’s Xavier Theatre, you’ll be ready to branch out into the world of theatre through various internships and ultimately direct your own career goals.

Before you graduate, internships are available throughout the Kansas City, area including:

  • Gladstone, Mo. Theatre in the Park

  • Kansas City Repertory Theatre

  • Kauffmann Center for the Performing Arts

  • Starlight Theatre

  • Theatre in the Park: Johnson County, Kan.

With small class sizes and professors who genuinely care, you’ll build an impressive resume that will get you noticed or land you a spot in graduate school.  Majors can earn an average of $28,000 with limited experience – and more than $100,000 with experience.

The USM degree will prepare you for careers in the following areas:

  • Actor/actress

  • Director

  • Designer

  • Choreographer
