5 Patriot Playhouse performers completed a Broadway Artists Alliance Musical Theatre intensive in New York City this summer.
Hayden B.W., Ali O., Skylar R.P., Mia S., and Sofia W. all wrapped up an exciting week with Broadway Artists Alliance as part of their Summer Session in New York City, studying with Broadway artists and professionals. During their week in the Big Apple, they took classes taught by Tony Award winners, Broadway performers, and New York's top casting directors, agents, coaches, and choreographers. They also had a surprise visit from a Tony Award winner.
Hayden and Mia ended their week performing in a final Off-Broadway showcase for top industry professionals, family, and friends in New York City at Alvin Ailey’s Citigroup theatre. BAA’s 2023 Off-Broadway showcase included 14 Broadway group numbers, aside from individual voice, acting, and dance student performances.
