Here’s what to expect from
Destination Broadway® 2020!
You do not need to audition again! If you attended in 2019, you are automatically invited for 2020. In fact, if you declare early and send your deposit by October 15th, you will receive a voucher for $100 towards tuition. DB 2020 is July 26th - August 1st.
We have already reserved a large block of rooms at The Homewood Suites Hotel. This was our host hotel for 2019 and we are definitely going to use that hotel again. Parents, students, and our staff LOVED that hotel. As soon as they will take individual reservations, we will let you know.
Every 2020 student will have an interview/audition with a casting agent from one of the major casting agencies. In 2019 some of our students fit the exact “breakdowns” for shows in New York and had auditions with those agencies. In 2020 every student will have an audition so the agency has them on file for any future roles.
Additional seminars for parents. In 2020 we will add to the already well-received parent seminars. The speakers will include Broadway performers, a child actor and their parent, a stage manager, a casting agent, an agent representing actors, a “dresser” (works backstage to assist performers with costumes) and a “child wrangler” (terrible name for someone that takes care of child performers!).
Special Note from Jim and Linda Haas...
We believe the Destination Broadway® program offers more advice and individual training to young aspiring performers than any other musical theater intensive.
We also believe parents are a critical factor in the success of any aspiring performer. In fact, we refer to the pursuit of musical theater as a “family project”! Recognizing this, we have created special seminars and information sessions for our parents. College night, talkbacks, showcase, class visitation, and the parent seminars with Broadway professionals are all important parts of the success plan.
Thank you for the many wonderful e-mails from parents about the value of the program. We appreciate the enthusiasm and support of our students and parents and look forward to a great 2020 program.
New things are coming in 2020 to make Destination Broadway® even more valuable for students and parents!
