On Monday, November 19, 2018, Broadway Dreams hosted its annual New York City Showcase, the organization's cornerstone event that affords select students from around the world a once-in-a-lifetime chance to turn their dreams into realities as they perform for every major Broadway casting agency working on Broadway as well as other top industry professionals.

This year, Broadway Dreams conducted its signature Intensive series with a record-breaking global footprint. The more than 70 student performers will come to NYC from various cities across the United States (Aspen, Atlanta, Charlotte, Los Angeles, New York and Philadelphia), Canada (Calgary, Toronto), Brazil (Brasilia, Fortaleza, Recife), Germany (Rust), New Zealand (Auckland), and Russia (Moscow, St. Petersburg).

"In this challenging political climate, we believe now more than ever in the unifying power of the arts," said Annette Tanner, Broadway Dreams Founder and President. "Over the course of this record-breaking year, we were continually reminded of our shared humanity through music and connection. We are so proud to present this year's incredibly talented and diverse Broadway Dreams students with the industry."

The Showcase performance was directed by Spencer Liff, a multiple Emmy Award-nominated choreographer for his work on the hit television show "So You Think You Can Dance" and currently represented on Broadway in Head Over Heels. The evening will include musical performances conceived by Broadway professionals, including Leandro Coelho, Craig D'Amico, Tyler Hanes, Christopher J. Hanke, Noah Himmelstein, Victor Jackson, Wonza Johnson, Ryann Redmond, Maxx Reed, Nicholas Rodriguez, Matthew Scott, Megan Sikora, Alan Souza, Elizabeth Stanley, and Balint Varga.
