It’s time to start making summer plans for your talented little artist. “Camp Broadway®” will be conducting summer classes for aspiring young artists. Jacksonville is bringing Broadway to your kids direct from New York! “Camp Broadway®”, presented by the FSCJ Artist Series, returns for its 16th year from Monday, June 13 – Friday, June 17, 2016. This year, campers will perform either “Legally Blonde the Musical” or “How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying,” depending on their age group. The performance will take place on Friday, June 17, 2016 from 4 – 6 p.m. at the conclusion of camp.
“Camp Broadway®” introduces young people to the world of life on-stage and behind the scenes. Campers work with Broadway directors, choreographers, and musical directors to receive training in acting, scene study, improvisation, music theory, solo and ensemble singing, movement, and dance. This five-day performing arts program offers each camper the opportunity to expand his or her creative talents, build self-esteem, learn the art of collaboration, and gain a fuller respect and understanding of musical theatre.
With authentic Broadway instructors teaching dance routines and musical numbers at the same break-neck speed as a real Broadway show, “Camp Broadway®” is a fun-filled week of activities designed to teach kids about the serious business of live theater. One activity is their annual ‘Salute to Singin’ and Dancin’ Kids™’ (a special luncheon where campers meet and hear about the various theater jobs from real theater professionals).
“Camp Broadway®” has been proclaimed the “Camp of Dreams” for starry-eyed kids who are just beginning to dream of being on Broadway. It is a self-contained summer workshop that travels around the country bringing Broadway to kids. The 40 hours of camp include: singing, dancing and master classes for kids ages 10 to 17. No singing, dancing, or acting experience necessary – just a willingness to have fun and a curiosity about what happens on stage and behind the curtain!
Proclaimed “The Camp of Dreams” by Live Magazine, Camp Broadway has hosted nearly 20,000 children from all 50 states and dozens of countries at its annual summer programs leading with its flagship programming New York City, as well as cities such as Atlanta, Buffalo, Jacksonville, Providence, Tempe, and elsewhere in America. Camp Broadway has also been featured regularly on the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade® telecast; performed with the New York Pops at Carnegie Hall; and appeared in Broadway on Broadway®, an annual free concert in Times Square.
