Broadway Workshop’s Excel Teen Intensive – Session 2 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 and group ensemble pieces in preparation for our end of program production, where they will perform for a panel of New York agents, mangers 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 2 is the larger session of the EXCEL TEEN INTENSIVE.
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.
- VOCAL MAJORS should have 2 musical theatre song selections and one contemporary monologue 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.

During the Excel Session 2 week, students will also see the Wednesday matinee of Broadway’s new musical – MEAN GIRLS. The story of Mean Girls centers around Cady Heron (played by Broadway Workshop teacher – ERIKA HENNINGSEN) who has grown up on an African savanna, but nothing prepared her for the wild and vicious ways of her strange new home: suburban Illinois where she meets The Plastics, a trio of lionized frenemies led by the charming but ruthless Regina George (played by Broadway Workshop teacher – TAYLOR LOUDERMAN). But, when Cady devises a plan to end Regina’s reign, she learns the hard way that you can’t cross a Queen Bee without getting stung. We know our students are going to have a blast at this incredibly fun new musical!
STUDENTS ENROLLED IN THE EXCEL TEEN INTENSIVE PROGRAM SHOULD HAVE PRIOR EXPERIENCE IN SCHOOL, COMMUNITY OR PROFESSIONAL THEATRE.
