The Broadway Workshop Series (BWS) program offers a summer camp structure that is geared towards younger students and beginners. BWS often serves as a child’s first taste of theatrical experience! Several BWS sessions are offered throughout the summer in various locations around Chicago. Each session offers a unique theme and is designed for a particular age group. BWS students learn the foundational practices for all three aspects of musical theatre: singing, acting, and dance. Each session culminates with a showcase presentation where each student participant gets a moment to shine. Enrollment in each session is limited to guarantee the best experience for all students involved.

Our Summer 2019 BWS Season has closed. Please check back for the announcement of our 2020 BWS program in a few months! In the meantime, watch out for our Broadway Kids! production of Frozen in December and stay up to date on the many performances we have coming up!
