  • All completed video audition submissions will be reviewed by Camp Broadway’s management and/or creative team and evaluated based on the specific requirements for each performance event(s).
  • Videos are reviewed on a rolling basis.  This means that Camp Broadway’s team will review the audition submissions and extend an invitation to ensemble members as video submissions are completed – so it’s advantageous to submit early!
  • A completed video audition is valid for up to 2-years. We understand the process of auditioning is time-consuming and has costs associated with it. Camp Broadway’s team wants to ensure we have current and accurate insight into the child’s singing, dancing, and acting skills levels—which improves greatly year over year at this age.
