The Next Step is exactly what its title claims - it's a next step in the performance training process for previous campers and teens with some performance experience between the ages of 14 and 17. More than any other program, The Next Step captures the essence of Camp Broadway’s mantra, Develop Your Character. Each element of the 5-day event is designed to hone musical theater abilities, enhance interpersonal skills, and cultivate the habit of discipline that dedicated theatrical artists need to have. Through singing, dancing, and acting workshops, participants will “discover their character,” be it an ingénue, a comedic performer, or a belting diva.
Similar to the Mainstage camp, campers in The Next Step will join us for a full week of rehearsals and auditions, and will present their work for family and friends on Friday afternoon. While Mainstage will still accept 100 campers and take place at Shea's Buffalo Theatre, The Next Step will accept only 35 campers and will take place at Shea's 710 Theatre for a more intimate, cabaret-style experience.
