Founded back in the mid-2010’s as a way to provide more opportunities for the top of next generation of young performers at the Woodland Opera House, Broadway Bound is an audition-only training and performance group that meets weekly each academic year from September to May. All members are between the ages of 11-years-old and 18-years-old (high school senior.)
Broadway Bound’s weekly rehearsals include:
Occasionally, due to the needs of their performance calendar, their weekly schedule may vary to allow for rehearsal for a particular performance. When not rehearsing for an upcoming performance, Broadway Bound members work on vocal technique, music theory, improvisation, various acting techniques (working monologues, songs as a monologue, duo scenes, etc.) and dance (studying various styles, choreography projects, studying the history of musical theatre dance, etc.) The goal is to take performers that wish to dedicate their passion for musical theatre and bring them to the next level.
Broadway Bound members serve as ambassadors of the Woodland Opera House and are thereby expected to commit to high expectations becoming of an elite training and performance group. Regular attendance is expected at all weekly rehearsals and all members and their parents sign a contract of expectations prior to the academic year’s start.
Broadway Bound auditions annually in the early-to-mid summer for the following academic year. Members are expected to commit to the full year commitment. Trust us, it’s worth it!
In previous years, Broadway Bound has performed at various local festivals and events, including:
*Denotes National Anthem performance.
Broadway Bound is currently run by Education Director, Andrea St. Clair, and Music Director, Lori Jarvey.
