One of the most unique features of our program is that we offer outstanding musical theatre performance training while also examining theatrical craft, literature and history through a social justice lens. Roosevelt University was founded on a mission of social justice, and that focus is centered throughout our students’ academic and artistic studies at CCPA.
Our faculty is comprised of full-time professors as well as many active theatre professionals who lend their unique talents and expertise to the Conservatory. At CCPA, our students learn from and work alongside Chicago's very best, and a low student/faculty ratio results in focused study tailored to each student's needs.
Located in the heart of downtown Chicago, CCPA is just steps away from Chicago's bustling theatre district and the Tony award-winning Goodman Theatre, Steppenwolf Theatre Company, Lookingglass Theatre and Chicago Shakespeare Theatre — and our students have graced the stages of them all. Theatre Conservatory alumni are currently gracing stages on Broadway, national and international tours, regional theaters and cruise ships as well as Disney and Universal Studios theme parks, both in the U.S. and Asia.
