Millikin University - Decatur, IL
What Students Are Saying

Collin O'Connor and Liz Fallon in
Ordinary Days

“For me, the New Musicals program is the number one asset that sets Millikin University apart from other theatre programs across the country. The process of helping up-and-coming composing teams create new work is unlike any other I have ever experienced. Not only did this program help me hone valuable musical and acting skills, it also helped me to develop priceless connections with writers that are the future of the musical theatre (not to mention added great credits to my resume). To any student who thinks he or she cannot gain valuable theatre connections and credits in a place like Decatur, Illinois, I urge him or her to take full advantage of the unique opportunity provided through the New Musicals program."

“New Musicals did more for me than anything I could ever ask for at Millikin. It is the single most important experience an a artist could have moving into the industry, especially in New York City. I would not be able to get the work I am getting without the experience of the program plus the connections and networking that came from it. New Musicals will give you first-hand experience of what it's like to be working in the city before you even graduate."
