What sets us apart is the deep connection within our Broadway Bootcamp family.

At Broadway Bootcamp, we are more than just a camp; we are a community dedicated to exposing children to the magic of theater and providing them with the skills and mentorship they need to shine on and off the stage.
Auditions are an important part of a performers journey. Our auditions are designed with a dual purpose: for entry into camp and to cast roles in the upcoming show.
The auditions for entry serve as a means to guarantee that campers can seamlessly navigate the fast-paced nature of our camp. Beyond talent, we highly value enthusiasm, positive attitudes, and the ability to focus and follow directions in our campers.
Once accepted, campers can look forward to a unique experience with a named role and minimum of 5 lines and 5 songs in the show— an integral part of what makes BBC truly special! The cast list is posted after the first day of camp, providing time for final casting confirmations. Join us for an audition experience that not only celebrates individual talents but also embraces the positive spirit and dedication that make BBC stand out.

Every day begins with a large circle, vocal and physical warm ups and daily announcements. Talent Share begins as campers opt to share their one minute talent with the rest of camp. The first part of the day we have dynamic classes of Singing, Acting and Dance tailored to age groups circulating through engaging workshops.
A fifteen minute break provides a moment to recharge before plunging into the heart of the day-rehearsals for the show. With 3-4 different rehearsal rooms bustling at any given time, our campers are always busy!
During tech week we have longer days as we begin to run the show in its entirety on the stage with various elements added every day; hair, make up, lights, costumes, quick changes, set changes, props etc. At the end of every day we celebrate excellence with the announcement and song- the "STAR OF THE DAY" the person or group who have shown an extraordinary effort or talent that day. Star of the Day includes a prize and a picture posted on Social Media.
Camp is three weeks and attendance is mandatory for all days of camp. There is a strict attendance policy as the rehearsals are fast paced with no time to review lost days. Our mini camp for ages 7-9 has one to two week options available.
Yes. We can accommodate most requests for daily workshops (grouped by age). Rehearsal grouping is according to specific scenes and numbers. Dressing rooms are assigned by school grade level.
The mini camper minimum age is set at 7 years old because reading scripts and music dictate the need for strong reading skills.
Our minicamp for ages 7-9 is by registration only so no auditions are required! We do fill up every year and a waiting list will be formed once we have reached our limit.
