At BMA, we encourage all of our students to audition for our musicals. We believe that performing is the perfect opportunity for our students to use the skill sets they’ve learned in our classrooms and put them into practice on stage.
We are committed to exposing our students to every genre of musical theater. We are producing everything from classic pieces like Rodgers and Hammerstein’s CAROUSEL to provocative material like HAIR and SPRING AWAKENING.
“The necessity of programs like BROADWAY METHOD ACADEMY in local communities cannot be overlooked or ignored. BMA provides a nurturing environment for young students to grow not just as artista, but as individuals, in a way that positively challenges and enforces their sense of self. As a guest teacher at BMA, I have noticed the confidence and worth ethic of each student: a grounded assuredness that is so easily lost for many young individuals in the debilitating chaos that often goes hand in hand with growing up. BMA gives young students the foundations and tools necessary to cultivate their skills while also providing a catalyst for self-discovery in a safe space.”
