Everyone has heard of Texas State and their popular musical theatre BFA program. We are very excited to offer you the chance to meet the new Co-Heads of the program Tom Delbello and Cassie Abate, who now head the program along with Kaitlin Hopkins. Cassie and Tom, who will be doing the recruiting for Texas State in 2022-2023, will lead you through an exciting day which includes the song and dance master classes, an information session about the school, and a campus tour. 

Tom Delbello is a multidisciplinary theatre-educator who holds an MFA in Directing from Texas State. His career as a performer and director has taken him around the world and as an educator he seeks to create a brave space for students to fail forward on their path to discovering their unique voice as storytellers. Tom will also answer your questions about the Texas State MT program and their prescreen process.

Cassie Abate holds an MFA in musical theatre and years of experience as a dancer and award-winning choreographer. She seeks to empower young artists and prepare them for work at the highest caliber of the business. Cassie will teach a brief dance combo and give feedback to students.
