Broadway Workshop’s Excel Teen Intensive – Session 1 is a 5-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 3 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 theatre 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 3 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 NYC.
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, Mark Simon Casting, Tara Rubin Casting and many others.

During the Excel Session 1 week, students will also see the Wednesday matinee of the astounding Broadway revival of ONCE ON THIS ISLAND at the Circle in the Square Theatre. ONCE ON THIS ISLAND tells the universal tale of Ti Moune, a fearless peasant girl in search of her place in the world, and ready to risk it all for love. Guided by the mighty island gods, Ti Moune sets out on a remarkable journey to reunite with the man who has captured her heart. We are so excited to share this show with our Junior Excel Students. Following the performance students will have a private Q&A with the Broadway cast.
