Performing on Broadway is one step closer to reality for tweens and teens who have been watching “High School Musical,” and “Glee,” and dream of a musical theatre career.
Broadway Inside and Out, presented by Broadway Classroom, is a program that allows tweens and teens at every skill level an opportunity to study with current Broadway performers, learn music and choreography and see a Broadway show.
Broadway Inside and Out’s fall workshop and theatre schedule is impressive:
Saturday, September 25, 2010 Tony Award-winning Billy Elliot
Saturday, October 9, 2010 Broadway classic, West Side Story
Saturday, November 13, Tony Award-winning In the Heights
Each Broadway Inside and Out theatre workshop is priced at $165 per person and begins with the three-hour workshop with a Broadway professional at 9 a.m., followed by lunch at Planet Hollywood and a ticket to see the featured musical. Students, ideal for ages 10 up to 19, will learn music and choreography from the show, talk one-on-one with Broadway professionals about careers in theatre and have an opportunity for photos and autographs.
Over the course of the three-hour workshop, participants will be challenged by working theatre professionals to surpass the level at which they are currently performing by developing skills to learn music and choreography not just quickly, but simultaneously.
The deadline for applications for the September 25 Billy Elliot workshop is August 15; for the October 9 West Side Story workshop, applications are due September 1; and October 6 for the November 13 In The Heights workshop. Schedules, information and applications are available at Broadway Classroom.
