Marymount Manhattan College theatre alumni are working on Broadway, off-Broadway, in television, in film, at regional theatres, and everywhere in between. Many of our students also go on to graduate schools across the country and the world.

    I moved to New York wanting to be an actor,” he says. “MMC helped me realize that there were other careers in the theater. If not for the flexibility of MMC’s liberal arts programs, I would not have been able to make the transition from in front of to behind the curtain so easily or fruitfully.

  • 2005, B.F.A. in Acting and Musical Theatre

    I always knew that my opportunity to become a better artist would start with living in New York City.  I could further my education as a performer with all the best resources at my fingertips.  Marymount Manhattan College and New York City were a perfect match for me.

  • 2013, B.A. in Theatre Arts with a concentration in Directing

    Life after graduating from Marymount Manhattan was definitely difficult. You leave a safe environment with an amazing support network of friends, professors, and mentors, and suddenly are in the real world. MMC allowed me to become a well-rounded theater artist. I was able to take courses in every aspect of theater, plus the liberal arts, and without that, I would not be running two theater companies today. The skills I learned at MMC have given me the confidence that’s necessary to succeed in theater.

  • Class of 2013, BA in Theatre Performance, Musical Theatre minor

    “The beauty of a liberal arts education is that it’s so well-rounded. Although my focus was on theatre, in addition to performance training, I was able to build social, cultural and ethical awareness. In doing so, I made connections across many different fields that have been invaluable to my life’s journey.”

  • 2017, B.F.A. in Acting

    Thanks to Marymount’s BFA Acting program, I have become a disciplined/well-versed actor and a well-rounded human being.  I particularly attribute this to the integration of my liberal arts education. I have carried all of the vocal, movement, and acting techniques I learned in school with me into the professional world, and needless to say, I would not be where I am today without the help of all of my glorious teachers paving the way!
