School of Performing Arts

Skilled and inspired performers articulate the breadth of human experience, engaging and bringing audiences together. At CapU you’ll find a supportive environment, a creative community and the guidance and direction to reach those audiences.

Why study the performing arts at CapU?

Whether there’s music in your soul and a song in your heart or you prefer to keep the show on the road, you’ll find a CapU program tailored to you – from jazz studies and musical theatre to arts management and technical production.

Our instructors are artists and creators, industry professionals who know where you’re coming from and can help you get where you’re going. As a CapU student you’ll be part of a creative community sharing the worlds of theatre, music and arts administration.

CapU grads are sought after in the creative industry, largely due to the extensive hands-on training you receive. With state-of-the-art theatre space, rehearsal halls and scene shops, our students build sets, perform in theatre productions and play alongside award-winning musicians. So when our CapU grads walk onto a stage or into a studio or concert hall they’re ready to contribute to creative projects right from the get-go.

Resources for CapU students

We’re here to support you at every step of your education journey. Check out the Learning Commons – an area for all students to grow in confidence as they master course material and gain new skills. Our specialized support centres include:

CapU’s Career Development Centre can help you find employment throughout your studies and as you move into the professional world. 

And keep an eye out for the many student associations that offer networking events, opportunities to meet industry leaders from your field of study, and social get-togethers.
