I have been accepted into two drama schools: one for musical theatre and one for acting. As a singer, which should I attend?

Music Theater Schools vs. Dramatic Acting Schools

If you are a musical theater actor, choosing the right school for you can be a difficult task. You need to ask yourself where you want your career to go. Do you want to work exclusively in musicals? Do you want to be flexible enough to do both musicals and dramatic acting? Once you have answered this question, your choice will be clear. Musical theater schools offer a very specific education, which is invaluable for those who envision a life in musicals. Flexibility can be obtained if you attend a dramatic school. Here, you can study dramatic acting while still improving your musical skills through the assistance of a coach or music instructor.
