The Providence Performing
Arts Center is proud to present
August 6-10, 2018!

Next Stop BROADWAY® is a week-long performing arts program consisting of classes, workshops, and rehearsals focused on classic Broadway shows. The staff of Broadway professionals will teach participants (“cast members”) songs and choreography from two hit shows from the “Golden Age of Broadway” and create their own presentations based on shows in the upcoming PPAC season and other hit musicals.  In addition to dance and vocal training, the program includes a mid-week “edu-tainment” segment, highlighted with film clips of Broadway shows. The week culminates with an “Opening Night” performance for family and friends on Friday afternoon followed by a cast party in PPAC’s Grand Lobby!

Paid registrations are limited to 70 children aged 10-17 by August 1, 2018, and are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. 30 full scholarships for the week will be awarded on a non-competitive basis to children with financial need and an interest in the performing arts. 

If you’re interested in participating in Next Stop BROADWAY® this summer, REGISTER NOW, DON’T WAIT!
