Cambridge: Drayton Entertainment offers a Broadway Bootcamp with Jewelle Blackman and Paul Alexander Nolan

Thursday, April 1, 2021

This is no joke! Our online Broadway Bootcamp for youth ages 9 to 19 is so popular that the first spring break session sold out in 48 hours. Due to high demand, we've added another two-day session during spring break on Wednesday, April 14 and Thursday, April 15. As the program is online, it is open to participants across Canada ... so tell your friends, kids, and grandkids!

This bootcamp will be packed with amazing classes taught by professional artists, wonderful chances to virtually connect with fellow aspiring young performers, and the rare opportunity to hear from two incredible Broadway stars. This time we will chat with two amazing Canadians on Broadway! Jewelle Blackman, who plays Fate in the Grammy and Tony-Award winning musical Hadestown, and Paul Alexander Nolan, who has starred in seven Broadway productions including playing Jesus in the revival of Jesus Christ Superstar, Guy in Once, Jimmy Ray in Bright Star, Jim in Slave Play, and many others.

Join us! Sing, dance, act, laugh, and connect during this two-day workshop for youth who love theatre. Details below!

Broadway Bootcamp includes these fun and inspiring classes:

Students will work on character development techniques for making a performance more authentic as they sing a musical theatre song in a small group masterclass.

5-6-7-8! Each day, students will learn choreography inspired by blockbuster Broadway shows, suited to all levels of dance experience, while having lots of fun.

“Yes, and….!” Students will play theatre games aimed at boosting confidence and enhancing storytelling skills in a safe and supportive environment.

Students will receive an age-appropriate monologue ahead of the class and work to develop a better understanding of creating believable characters in a small group masterclass.

Each day, all students will meet for a Q&A with a Broadway performer who will share advice and insight about charting your path to success.
