Musical Theatre

The Voice area at the Bob Cole Conservatory provides ample opportunity for the devotee of American Musical Theatre. Students who major in Vocal Performance, Choral Education, or Theatre may audition for shows produced by the Conservatory and the Department of Theatre Arts.

The Bob Cole Chamber Choir performs One Day More from Les Misérables at Beach Café.

The Voice area presents a The Beach Café every semester, and frequent masterclasses allow the budding musical theatre performer the opportunity for mock auditions, feedback from professional musical theatre performers, and significant performance experience.

CSULB's Dance Department is ranked nationally in the top ten; voice students are encouraged to develop their dance experience in the University's state-of-the-art dance facility, which is located directly adjacent to the Conservatory.

Selected Repertoire

Recent CSULB full productions include The Last Five Years, Spring Awakening, Assassins, Into the Woods, Closer than Ever and Side by Side by Sondheim. Concert performances have included works from Carousel, Rent, Les Misérables, Merrily We Roll Along, Camelot, Working , and many others.
