PlaybillEDU is a must for arts majors!

When you go to a Broadway show, an usher shows you to your seat and hands you a Playbill. You’ve probably leafed through the pages for the synopsis of the play and the biographies of the cast members. But you may not have noticed that Playbill offers something exceptional for college applicants: a free website called PlaybillEDU!

PlaybillEDU.com is a comprehensive searchable database of more than two thousand undergraduate theatre, dance and music programs at more than a thousand colleges and universities across the U.S. and Canada.

Designed to help college-bound and potential transfer students find and compare programs that suit their individual career plans, PlaybillEDU.com allows young people interested in the performing arts to learn about a greater variety of education opportunities than can be found through traditional college search websites that lack the detailed information tailored to the specific needs of performing arts students.

If you are planning to major in music, theatre or dance, this website is a must! It has a huge database of general information about schools as well as a plethora of information about majors and minors, programs, faculty, arts life and scholarship opportunities! For instance, I decided to look up Wellesley and found links to ten recent student performances as well as eight musical groups. I had no idea that Wellesley had a ballroom dance team or a combined orchestra with Brandeis.

Advertised as the internet’s largest searchable database of college performing arts, this is a real find. So if you are thinking of majoring in the arts, make sure to check them out!
