Broadway Bound challenges young people with a strong interest in theater to train as “triple threat” singers, dancers and actors. Artist mentors will use the ZOOM platform to engage students in dance, choreography, singing (music from Broadway musicals), and theater studies including playwriting and monologues. The technology will afford students one-on-one coaching with mentors as well as the opportunity to work with other young performers. The immersive workshops will help students continue their training and spark new interests in expression for the theater and film. There also will be a resource platform included for all sessions. It will include relevant videos, interviews with artists in the field and instructional help for all areas.
The artist mentors will include Laura Elaine Ellis, Stefano Flavoni, Christian Haines, Erin Hewitt, Peter Meredith, Melinda Neal, Tom Shaw, and Jamie Yuen-Shore. Young SFArtsED alumni Eloise Bennan, Ryan Doyle, and Mackenzie Rohan will assist.
