Current New York Broadway Newsletter – Week of December 10, 2018

Congratulations to all of our confirmed attendees for our Wicked “For Good” Day on Broadway February 9, 2019. We are thrilled to partner with this Oz-tastic show for the 18th time and hope to be able to do this again in 2020. Our Teaching Artists are in rehearsals now and we will be sharing pictures of them in January 2019. We also have an exciting mid-year event called “Defy Gravity Show and Workshop Saturday June 1, 2019” which is an in-studio program similar to the “For Good” Workshop but on a smaller scale and a bit more intimate. We look forward to having you involved, please see the Build A Group Event Listings below for the event details and book now as availability is limited.

As we shared previously, there are School Groups and Scout Troops travelling from across the country for our last workshops of 2018 and we are excited to see our loyal, long term partners again and meet some new first time workshop attendees. We have been getting calls from Educators, Girl Scout Troop Leaders and Group Leaders reserving Winter/Spring 2019 as we already have over 10 to 20 MasterClasses booked for Spring 2019. Please place your order soon to get best availability and avoid being disappointed. Private MasterClasses and Broadway Show Tickets are available on any date of your choice as long as you meet the required minimum of twenty participants or more, including chaperones. Our programs are designed for all ages and everyone is educated and entertained during our In-Studio Programs.

 

As a friendly reminder, you can now book all Events in our 2019 “Build A Group Series” (see below). Our Build A Group Events are intended for groups who do not meet our standard minimums of 20 or more. If you have a group of 20 or more, again,  you can choose the show of your choice on the date of your choice and book a Private MasterClass and Show. We always suggest that you book in advance to get the best Seats, Studios and Artists available. Also, StudentsLive is proud to announce a Special Discount to our Loyal Partners who have attended our programs for more than five years consecutively. Please ask how you can benefit from this special offer to thank you for your loyalty.

StudentsLive is producing our Third Annual Audition Weekend with an Acting Conservatory in Toronto, Canada in April 2019. The student artists are selecting the Broadway shows that they will be seeing on their trip to New York. We are planning an Acting MasterClass with our Artistic Director Amy Weinstein, a Dance MasterClass with a Broadway actor from one of their selected shows, a Vocal MasterClass with a Broadway actor from another of their selected shows. This weekend will culminate in a Mock Audition MasterClass with a Broadway Casting Director where the students audition with all of the material they learned throughout the weekend. We have been so honored to work with this school and their great staff and students and watching them grow year by year. This program is also avaialble to add to our Passport to Broadway Musical Theater Intensive or for a shorter weekend program for any interested groups.

 

Passport to Broadway CEO/Artistic Director Amy Weinstein has been invited to speak to Bicara Edukasi (Education Talk) during their STEAM Week Event at the Indonesia Ministry of Education.

They will be launching a 2019 STEAM Week Program around Indonesia. Amy will be speaking at the launching event on Saturday, 15 December 2018 at the Auditorium of Indonesia Ministry of Education in Jakarta. They will invite 100 Principals and Teachers and 50 International Schools Principal. Amy will be speaking via Skype and giving an inspirational talk on Arts as a Foundation of Academics and Leadership. The Skype Session is Friday, December 14th NY Time and we look forward to sharing photos with you after that event.

 

StudentsLive/Passport to Broadway CEO/Artistic Director Amy Weinstein was honored to have been asked to speak via a Skype Teleconference at the US Embassy in Jakarta, Indonesia on Friday December 7, 2019, see details and pictures below.

 

Passport to Broadway continues to expand and develop our relationships with mutual minded theater and education partners around the world largely due to the demand for high standard Musical Theater curricula that we have successfully produced internationally since 2008. We are working on a variety of potential pipeline programs including a pending school coming to New York from Hong Kong via our partners in the Tour and Travel industry. As we shared, we are also working with a well-known Foundation in Indonesia on a pending Musical Theater Intensive in Jakarta for Winter 2019. We have been introduced to a Shanghai Producer of Broadway and Off-Broadway shows and a large Education Group focusing on expanding their schools with liberal arts studies in Beijing and Shanghai, China. Finally, we are in discussions with schools in Budapest, Hungary and Kuwait.

 

If you would like to bring our Passport to Broadway Musical Theater Intensives to your local school or Council, please contact us to setup a call and we will be happy to discuss how this Award-Winning Program that is touring around the world can partner with your Students or Scouts.
