Shea's Arts Engagement and Education department offers programming for all ages, interests, and skill levels.
Camp Broadway returns to Buffalo in summer 2019 with Mainstage and The Next Step, two exciting theatre camps taught by seasoned Broadway professionals. Mainstage is Camp Broadway’s original one-week summer camp for young people ages 10 to 17 with an interest in musical theatre. Campers develop confidence, character, and presentation skills through ensemble performance. The Next Step is a one-week specialized musical theatre intensive for advanced performers ages 14 to 17.
Exploring the Arts is a weekly learning series that exposes community members to various artistic disciplines including theatre, visual art, music, and dramatic writing. Each spring, professional teaching artists conduct a sequence of interactive workshops with a particular theme or artistic focus. Learners experience multiple approaches to the artistic process and demonstrate their learning with a final project.
