Camp Broadway Mainstage Highlights 2017

Each summer since 1995, over 30,000 kids from all over the country have attended Camp Broadway’s 5-day signature program, working with industry professionals direct from Broadway in an authentic Broadway rehearsal process to perform classic numbers from Broadway’s most beloved shows.  This summer, Camp Broadway celebrated its 21st summer of connecting Broadway professionals with theater-loving kids in New York City and around the country.  Below is a peek into the rehearsal process and once-in-a-lifetime moments that children experience in a week of Camp Broadway. See our favorite moments from camp in 2017, including workshops with Broadway pros, meeting the kids of CHARLIE & THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY, seeing ANASTASIA on Broadway and performing hits from Peter Pan and Shrek the Musical.


 

All week long, campers work with our staff of directors, choreographers, and music directors who all have extensive Broadway and National Tour credits. They are leaders and master teachers who are successful in translating the traditions and standards known to professionals on Broadway into age-appropriate programs that are relevant and inspirational for aspiring amateur thespians.


Campers take part in the unique tradition of the Camp Broadway Robe.


Campers spend Wednesday in Times Square, first rehearsing at B.B. King Blues Club before heading off to a Broadway matinee.


 

NYC CB’ers had a special workshop with Anastasia’s Ian Knauer, and learning choreography inspired by the show.


The young performers of Broadway’s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory visited for a special Q&A, sharing with our campers what it’s like to be a kid on Broadway.


Campers attended a matinee of Anastasia and were treated to an exclusive post-show talkback with the cast!
