Project Broadway is the 501c3 non-profit arm of Broadway Workshop, dedicated to providing enriching educational experiences and scholarship opportunities for students in all areas of the theater arts. We aim to provide unique experiences that develop important life skills, encourage self-expression, inspire personal exploration and motivate authentic development for students of all ages. Most importantly, our mission is to make these opportunities available to children who would not be able to otherwise participate in theater arts programs due to financial constraints.
Project Broadway is proud that 100% of our income goes directly to our programs. Performance is powerful and empowering; it helps all children in many ways including teaching them to take ownership of their own thoughts, stories, talents and abilities. Research suggests that creativity helps children maintain good mental and physical health. There is evidence that participating in the creative arts can improve student literacy and overall academic achievement.
Scholarship eligibility is based on financial need and determined by ability demonstrated by audition. It is open to all children from the general public. These scholarships may provide the only opportunity for children in need to experience visual and performing arts, offering the children sense of accomplishment, personal locus of control, self-esteem, and a desire to connect with their community. Children interested in A Project Broadway Scholarship must complete a scholarship application audition for the artistic director and musical director.
Project Broadway was established by Broadway Workshop in 2010.

Here is what some Project Broadway scholarship recipreants have to say about their involvement in Broadway Workshop shows, camps and workshops, made possible by your generosity
Getting to be involved in Broadway Workshop’s Children’s Musical Theatre Festival was not only one of the greatest experiences I have ever had, but an insanely inspiring one as well. It would have never been possible without the generous scholarship from PROJECT BROADWAY. I feel so fortunate to have had incredible training from some of the most talented people I have ever worked with, while making so many new friends from all around the country, and learning so much in just one week about musical theatre and the industry. Without that scholarship, I would have missed out on a truly amazing experience. I cannot thank Broadway Workshop & Project Broadway enough! — Anthony, Student
My parents are great providers but have limited on resources, the Project Broadway program at Broadway Workshop program gave me an opportunity to pursue my passion. Because of the generous scholarship to attend the program, I have gained the confidence I did not have and have grown as a performer. This program has taught me a work ethic and a level of professionalism that not only takes place in our rehearsals but in my every day life. — Kevin, Student
I just wanted to say “Thank You” from the bottom of my heart for all of the work and time you put in with our kids this past week. Our students had the time of their lives, and I was so impressed with the level of professionalism displayed by your staff. My daughter learned so much, and was so excited to share all she had learned every day. The Showcase was amazing, and I know this workshop will be a lifetime memory for these kids! — Kelly, Mother
Our goal is to let every child who has a love of the performing arts the ability to participate in outstanding, high level programs that challenge them in ways they never imagined. With your generous support we can allow more children to experience the joys of getting to live their dreams through performance.
