HELLOOOO! CAMP BROADWAY…
MRS. DOUBTFIRE THE MUSICAL TO BE FEATURED AT
VIRTUAL MUSICAL THEATER CAMP FOR KIDS, 10-17
TWO SESSIONS ONLY—JULY 13-24 AND JULY 27-AUG 7
Camp Broadway LLC, an award-winning leader in theater arts-focused youth enrichment programming, celebrates the company’s 25th anniversary with the announcement of MyMainstage—their first virtual, fully interactive, musical theater camp that is taught LIVE by Broadway professionals and delivered online to aspiring performers in the comfort and safety of their own home. MyMainstage includes 30-hours (Monday through Friday over two weeks, 3-hours per day) of classes in singing, dancing, acting, and related activities that culminate in a professionally-produced video of the camp ensemble showcase with LIVE commentary from special guests.
“Although theatres and many camps in New York and across the country are closed, we are dedicated to keeping Broadway in the hearts and minds of families and kids,” says Camp Broadway CEO, Susan E. Lee. “This summer, we are excited that our campers will still get to go inside a Broadway show thanks to producer, Kevin McCollum, and his team at Mrs. Doubtfire.” Camp Broadway’s campers from around the country will get an exclusive insiders’ peak into the making of this delightful family-focused musical along with interactive discussions with members of the show’s cast, creative, production team. This interactive program will be presented LIVE exclusively on Broadway on Demand. Other special guests at Camp Broadway this summer include William Berloni, Berloni Theatrical Animals, and Jenna Gavigan, actress/author of “Lulu the Broadway Mouse.”
Theatre-loving kids who would have attended camp at many of Camp Broadway’s partner theatres around the country will be singing and dancing with kids from as far away as Qatar and Guatemala. “Hosting a virtual camp allows Camp Broadway to make our musical theatre experience accessible to a much broader audience. All kids, whether or not they have performing experience, are welcome” says Lee.
Camp Broadway is proud to be presented at premier performing arts centers including ASU Gammage (Tempe, AZ), the Las Casas Foundation (San Antonio, TX), Smith Center (Las Vegas, NV), Adrienne Arsht Center (Miami, FL), FSCJ Artist Series (Jacksonville, FL), and West Hampton Beach (Long Island, NY).
Known as “Broadway’s original destination for theatre-loving kids,” Camp Broadways’ 2020 theme is “New York, New York.” Kids, ages 10-17, will have a fun and informative online theatre experience that encourages creative collaboration and new friendships. Under the leadership of director/choreographer and Broadway performer Holly Raye, campers will learn scenes and staging from Guys and Dolls Jr., considered to be one of Broadway’s most perfect musicals. A team of music directors led by J. Navarro will teach a selection of the shows’ iconic songs including “Adelaide’s Lament,” “A Bushel and a Peck,” “Luck Be a Lady,” and “Sit Down You’re Rockin’ the Boat”. The campers will also learn a Salute to Broadway medley, meet special guests, and much more.
Camp Broadway is presenting two camp sessions only: July 13-24 (sold out) and July 27-Aug. 7. For effective teaching and to promote personal interaction between teacher and camper, each session is limited to 60 participants.
