Shea’s Performing Arts Center is pleased to have been presenting the Camp Broadway® Mainstage summer program for the past 16 years. Camp Broadway LLC is the recipient of the 2016 Special Drama Desk Award "for introducing young people to the magic of theater and for playing a crucial role in creating tomorrow’s audiences for over 20 years." We believe in their programming which provides campers from across Western New York with an authentic, enlightening and joyous theatre arts experience taught by trained Broadway professionals. Inspired by Broadway’s cherished works and steeped in its grand traditions, every program is designed to build confidence, inspire creative expression, and instill well-being in both aspiring artists and future audiences.
Starting in 2017, we are excited to present a new Camp Broadway program, The Next Step, in addition to the main stage camp you know and love. Camp Broadway's The Next Step offers a specialized musical theater intensive of musical theater classes taught by Broadway professionals, for aspiring teen performers, ages 14-17, who have had some previous on-stage experience. A highly unique program, The Next Step weaves traditional musical theater training into an immersive theatrical environment designed to give participants the opportunity to understand what it’s really like to be a Broadway "Gypsy." Inspired by the landmark musical A Chorus Line, The Next Step places emerging triple-threats into a setting that surrounds an authentic audition process for a Broadway show.
Registrations for both camps are accepted on a first come,
first served basis until full. No audition is required.
