PPAC Presents Next Stop, Broadway.

sponsored in part by
The Robert F. Stoico / FIRSTFED Charitable Foundation
and the PPAC Annual Fund Donors.


Next Stop BROADWAY® 

August 10-14, 2020

Next Stop BROADWAY® is a week-long performing arts program consisting of classes, workshops, and rehearsals focused on classic Broadway shows and taught by Broadway professionals.  Participants (“cast members”) learn 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. 

Next Stop BROADWAY®  will take place at the Providence Performing Arts Center and will culminate with an “Opening Night” performance on the PPAC stage for family and friends on Friday afternoon followed by a cast party in the Lobby!

Paid registrations are limited to 70 children ages 10-17 by August 1, 2020, and are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. 30 full scholarships for the week will be awarded in April 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!
