Broadway Workshop’s Excel Teen Intensive – Session 1 is a five-day summer program geared toward our older students (ages 13-19) with a strong passion for the performing arts. While every Excel student will study the three disciplines of musical theatre (Acting, Singing and Dance), this program allows students to choose a major (Acting or Voice). Students will prepare solo pieces in preparation for our end of program production, where they will perform for a panel of New York agents, managers and casting directors, as well as family and friends in an Off-Broadway theater space. Excel Teen Intensive is Broadway Workshop’s most popular program and has kept parents and students coming back each year. Session 1 is the smaller session of the EXCEL TEEN INTENSIVE with only three total groups. In Session 1 students will only perform their individual piece (song or monologue) in the final showcase. There is no group musical number in this session.  The final showcase will be presented at the Recital Hall at the Baruch Performing Arts Center in Manhattan.

Students can register for both Session 1 and Session 2 of Teen Excel. If you are interested in being part of the two back to back programs, we suggest you choose a different major for each session. 

Our past showcase guests include: Telsey + Company Casting, Jennifer Rudin Casting, the LA division of Disney Talent Development, Tara Rubin Casting, Mara Entertainment, Paradigm, Abrams Artists, and many others.

  • VOCAL MAJORS should have two (2) musical theatre song selections and one contemporary monologue prepared for the EXCEL program
  • ACTING MAJORS should have two (2) contemporary monologues and one musical theatre song prepared for the EXCEL program

In addition to their core classes Excel students will take master classes with New York’s top casting directors, Broadway actors, musical directors and choreographers. Broadway Workshop’s core teachers are highly regarded professional actors/teaching artists who have starred in major Broadway shows, on television and in film.

There is no pre-audition required for the EXCEL program. We have found our students are ready to work in a professional atmosphere with top industry professionals without the cost associated with pre-screen auditions and open auditions. STUDENTS ENROLLED IN THE EXCEL TEEN INTENSIVE PROGRAM SHOULD HAVE PRIOR EXPERIENCE IN SCHOOL, COMMUNITY OR PROFESSIONAL THEATRE.
