At Taylor, faith is not compartmentalized, but it strongly informs and influences everything we do. Every Taylor Theatre production is an opportunity to identify spiritual themes, wrestle with our brokenness, and look to the cross. Mitchell Theater hosts most of our musical theatre and opera productions, where our students audition for a variety of roles and practice on stage what is taught in the classroom.
The Music, Theatre, & Dance Scholarship is presented to outstanding high school seniors and transfer students who are committed to a career in music, theatre, or dance. The total award amounts vary depending on the student’s musical ability and the needs of the Department of Music, Theatre, and Dance.
