A Summer Intensive for Theatre Lovers Ages 10-17

Returning to PPAC July 24 - 28, 2023


Next Stop BROADWAY® transports participants to the “Golden Age of Broadway,” to join the ensemble of a classic musical. A five-day, rigorous immersion into the theatre, the cast will learn the music and choreography of iconic chorus numbers from a selected composer each year. The week culminates in experiencing the thrill of Opening Night held on Friday from 5-7 PM for families and friends.


Through workshops, classes, and rehearsals, the cast will tap their creativity, build their skills, and cultivate their passion all in the context of collaborating and fostering friendships with their fellow cast members -- right here on the stage of PPAC, one of the nation’s foremost and storied independent theaters!


Next Stop BROADWAY® is designed for the success of cast members with or without prior musical theater experience. No auditions are required. To respond to this casting call, registrants must be aged 10-17 on the first day of the program. Cast members must arrive between 8:30 and 8:50 AM and the program concludes at 5 PM (8 PM on Friday) daily. Optional meal plan included. Participation in Next Stop BROADWAY also includes a cast member reunion at a musical during PPAC's following Broadway season.


100 students join the cast annually. Registration is first-come, first-served and opens on February 1, 2023. Registration is $565 ($525 family discount rate) with partial or full need-based scholarships available.


We are grateful for the generous support of The Robert F. Stoico / FIRST FED Charitable Foundation, Jill and Larry Goldstein, and PPAC’s Annual Fund Donors.
