Broadway Workshop’s Excel Teen Intensive is a 5-day summer program geared toward our older students (ages 14-19) 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, 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.
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.

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.
