Broadway Workshop’s Junior Excel Intensive is a 5-day program geared toward students ages 8-14 with an extremely strong passion for the performing arts. Junior Excel students will study the 3 disciplines of musical theatre in small groups, broken down by age. Students will prepare solo and small group 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. Our final presentation will take place at the Baruch Performing Arts Center, an off Broadway theatre venue.
Our past showcase guests include: Telsey + Company Casting, Jennifer Rudin Casting, the LA division of Disney Talent Development, Tara Rubin Casting, Abrams Artists, Innovative Artist, CESD, Paradigm and many others.
Each day begins with a group warm up, students will then split up into smaller groups (by age) where they will have master classes in Song Interpretation/Musical Theatre Performance, Acting/Monologue preparation and Dance Master Classes making up their Core schedule. In addition to the Core classes, students will have special guest workshops with New York’s top Casting Directors, Broadway Actors, Musical Directors and Choreographers. This fast moving day will challenge each student and allow them to take the next big step in their training, while having an incredible time!

During the Junior Excel week, students will 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.
