Summer 2019 Broadway Bound Camps
Broadway Bound! camps are providing young actors the opportunity to participate in a theatrical experience which will develop confidence, responsibility and teamwork. Participants in our classes build self-esteem as they refine their creativity, active listening, and concentration skills all while learning about musical theatre.
Broadway Bound! teaching artists are theatre professionals – actors, designers and directors – who teach under the leadership of Lauren Sobon, Dutch Apple Artistic Producer and Dean Sobon, National Tour Director. Professional performers Katelyn Candiello (national tour of The Wizard of Oz, 2017- 2019) and Alyssa Crook (Senior Performing Arts student at Muhlenberg College) serve as camp administrators and counselors.
*Please note most of our previous participants will take each session at least 2 – 3 times before moving up to the next level. Every summer the student’s performance material is new to reinforce their skills without becoming repetitive.
