Broadway Ventures - Summer Musical Theatre Program

Due to the intensity of performing a musical in two weeks, BroadwayVentures is now an audition based program. Unfortunately, that means that not every student who auditions will be accepted into the program regardless of past participation in BroadwayVentures. New to this season, students interested in auditioning will be asked to sign-up on the Rec. Department website. Payment of tuition will not be required at this time. If you are accepted into the program, you will then be given instructions on how to register and make arrangements to pay tuition costs. 
Students accepted into BroadwayVentures will then be invited to callbacks to audition for specific roles in our production.
