Camp Broadway® is presenting an original :90 second musical theatre number featuring an ensemble of 100 performers ages 11-16 in the 87th Annual Hollywood Christmas Parade on Sunday, November 25, 2018 in Hollywood, California. Join talented singing and dancing teens from across America for 3-days of rehearsals lead by Broadway professionals that will culminate in a professionally produced performance on the red carpet for local VIPs. Audition video submissions are now being accepted for the Camp Broadway Kids Ensemble.
Presented and produced by Associated Television International, the Hollywood Christmas Parade is the largest Christmas celebration in America and a true Hollywood tradition that attracts more than one million in attendance each year. This live event features larger-than-life inflatable character balloons, celebrity filled cars, marching bands and musical performance groups, making the much-heralded trek down the over three-mile parade route. The parade is taped for network television and airs as a two-hour special on The CW Network, the Hallmark Channel and the American Forces Network at a later date to be announce as a benefit for The Marine Toys For Tots Foundation.
