Broadway Opens Its Doors To Theatre Teachers At The 2019 Broadway Teachers Workshop!
Now in its 18thyear, the Broadway Teachers Workshop has connected thousands of theatre teachers from around the world with Broadway's most prominent artists. Past guest speakers include Lin Manuel Miranda Stephen Sondheim, Stephen Schwartz, Bobby Lopez, Chita Rivera, Michael Mayer, Jerry Mitchell, Michael Grief, Jason Robert Brown, Alex Timbers, Kathleen Marshall, Roger Rees, Harvey Fierstein, Charles Strouse, Marsha Norman, Chris Gattelli, Jeanine Tesori, Stephen Flaherty, Walter Bobby, Matthew Warchus, Ken Billington, William Ivey Long, Susan Stroman, and many more.
The program is a three-day series of interactive workshops and seminars with Broadway artists and attendance at four (4) Broadway shows and post show discussions with cast and crew. Over 1,000 theatre educators from around the world will participate this summer in New York City.
The 2019 line up includes tickets to Tootsie, The Prom, Aint Too Proud, and King Kong-- and workshops with cast and creative team members from all of those shows - and more.
Designed to inspire teachers and directors of high school and middle school theatre and arts with new teaching methods, enhanced production skills, and an exchange of ideas with peers and professional Broadway artists, the program is produced by in conjunction with Music Theatre International and offers teachers the opportunity to earn graduate level academic credits.
The Workshop represents a once in a lifetime opportunity for educators and directors from all non-professional sectors to exchange ideas with Broadway's top artists - and with each other - in an intimate environment. The experience resonates long into the school year and beyond as Workshop members stay in touch with each other, with us, and with many of the Broadway artists they meet.
