WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT BROADWAY WORKSHOP GROUPS…
“Broadway Workshop is highly engaging for the students. It is a great way for your music and theatre students to see and learn the depth that goes into the process of being a performer. The students leave the workshops with a wealth of knowledge and are motivated to see the Broadway show.”
-Mark Bunce, Central Valley Academy
“I have sent many groups to Broadway Workshop over the past few years. The groups always have a great time. In fact, many teachers tell me it is the highlight of their trip! The staff makes sure every group has a unique experience and they are so easy and accommodating to work with. Whenever a group is seeing a show – whether they are a drama group or not – I always recommend a Broadway Workshop to round out their experience. And, of course they are never disappointed!
–Geri Shumer, Fantastic Tours
“Learning lyrics and choreography gave the students a real feel for the show. They enjoyed meeting a cast member and looked for her during the production later that day. They also loved seeing what they had learned being performed on stage during the actual performance. The students were also able to apply their own musical education and knowledge when learning the lyrics. It’s a wonderful hands-on experience!”
-Stacey Drucker, Manorhaven Elementary School
“Thank you SO much for a great Something Rotten workshop. My kids had a great time, learned a ton, and were in complete awe of their teachers Randy Redd and Beth Nicely. Beth was so gracious at the show as my kids swarmed her for autographs and pictures. The show was, of course, amazing! It’s such a pleasure to see my students experience theater in every way. Thank you for making their day special, memorable, and challenging! As usual, it was a great time with Broadway workshop!!”
– Andrea Perdicho, Brewster HS theater
“You were so wonderful with handling our requests and schedule, your hard work did not go unnoticed by the parents yesterday. They were so grateful for the opportunity their children had at The Broadway Workshop….and thank you for creating such a great program. I know our kids will be back….again, a million thousand thanks!”
–Elizabeth N. Synnott, Performer/Voice Teacher
“Thank you for a wonderful experience with my coed group of 8th graders. One of the highlights for the students on our 2016 trip was the Broadway Workshop experience. We worked with Randy Redd & Tess Ferrell learning a song & dance from Wicked. From the moment we walked into the beautiful Alvin Ailey studio we felt welcome. This was not a group of performers participating in this workshop. This was just an average group of students. A few of the students do enjoy singing but are not in a formal choir. Both of our Teachers immediately got the students involved. They challenged the kids to get out of their comfort zones and pushed them to do better without embarrassing or belittling them. I was honestly surprised that my male students were as into it as the female students were. I was thrilled that all students were totally interested and participated. The students really enjoyed the Q&A session after the workshop. Tess & Randy really answered honestly about their experiences that got them to where they were. It was also great that Tess told them the roles she would be playing that night in Wicked on Broadway. This was an experience they were talking about for the rest of the trip as well as since we have returned home. Thank you for including all students and giving them an experience they will remember forever.”
-Karla Jones, Kraemer Middle School
