Broadway Workshop’s Excel Teen Intensive (Sessions 1 & 2) is a five-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 three disciplines of musical theatre (acting, singing and dancing), this program allows students to choose a major (Acting or Voice). Excel Teen Intensive is Broadway Workshop’s most popular program and has kept parents and students coming back each year.

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. 

  • VOCAL MAJORS should have two (2) musical theatre song selections and one contemporary monologue prepared for the EXCEL program
  • ACTING MAJORS should have two (2) contemporary monologues and one musical theatre song 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. Broadway Workshop’s core teachers are highly regarded professional actors/teaching artists who have starred in major Broadway shows, on television and in film.

When you arrive at the start of each day there will be a no-contact temperature check . Anyone demonstrating a temperature of 100.4 or higher will not be permitted to enter the facility and masks are required at ALL TIMES, with the exception of when a student is performing.

Intensive groups will be split into smaller groups of 10 total students. The studios being used would normally accommodate 40-50 students. Students will be spaced out in classes and will remain with their group in their studio the full day. Groups will not combine during this intensive and will stay in their master class group for the full day in the same studio with multiple masterclass teachers coming to them. Students may leave the studio for bathroom breaks only. If a student in a group tests positive during the intensive, all students in that group will be moved to remote learning.

Past Guest teachers have included: LAURA BENANTI (My Fair Lady, Gypsy),  CHRISTIAN BORLE (Something Rotten, Legally Blonde, SMASH), SIERRA BOGGESS (School of RockThe Little Mermaid, Phantom), RACHEL BAY JONES (Dear Evan Hansen, Pippin), CAISSIE LEVY (Frozen, Les Miserables, Ghost, Hair), JONATHAN GROFF (Hamilton, Spring Awakening), JESSIE MUELLER (Waitress, Beautiful), CLAY THOMSON (Matilda, Newsies), NIKKI M.

There is no pre-audition required for the EXCEL program. We have found our students are ready to work in a professional atmosphere with top industry professionals without the cost associated with pre-screen auditions and open auditions. STUDENTS ENROLLED IN THE EXCEL TEEN INTENSIVE PROGRAM SHOULD HAVE PRIOR EXPERIENCE IN SCHOOL, COMMUNITY OR PROFESSIONAL THEATRE.

A sibling discount is available for TEEN EXCEL and will be automatically added during registration.

If the in-person versions of Excel Teen Intensive need to be canceled due to complications regarding the COVID-19, ALL STUDENTS will automatically be transferred into the ONLINE virtual versions of these programs, and refunded the difference in tuition.
