StudentsLive and Passport to Broadway Missions and Profiles

STUDENTSLIVE MISSION

StudentsLive’s mission is to create highly effective, interactive and innovative Workshops and new audience development programs in partnership with the best theater our country has to offer: Broadway. We enrich audiences’ access to and understanding of live theatre; creating and inspiring newer, better and wider audiences and artists alike; connecting and providing deeply engaging, experiential visits to Broadway Shows by offering the highest quality education programming and services.

 

We began partnering with producers to develop future audiences of critical thinkers who would return time and again to seek out quality theatre, and instill appreciation and love for the arts at an early age. Since 2000, StudentsLive’s curriculum-based programs have attracted over 100,000 new audiences from the widest range of cultural, ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds.

 

StudentsLive supports alternative learning, cross cultural and interdisciplinary opportunities for a wide range of new audiences and creating, developing, managing and implementing interactive Broadway Educational Workshops and Materials for support in classrooms worldwide. StudentsLive trains, hires, and organizes teams of Broadway artists and professionals to serve each audience’s needs, and our programs enable a new generation of audiences to make the arts a permanent part of their lives in ways in which they can deeply explore its value, not just fill up a seat.

PASSPORT TO BROADWAY MISSION AND PROFILE

In 2008, StudentsLive began to develop audiences outside the United States with Passport to Broadway – An International and Domestic Musical Theater Program, a customizable and ultimate Broadway Education experience presented by our organization for students of all ages.  Passport to Broadway was developed to bring international and domestic young people and students to New York City as well as StudentsLive traveling to their specific locales and countries for a life changing educational experience.

 

The StudentsLive Passport to Broadway Program (www.passporttobroadway.com) allows students the opportunity to experience, first hand, the best live, Broadway interactive theater education programs, taught by the best, highly trained Broadway specialists, our country has to offer. The program allows students to experience the intensive training of a professional, successful and highly disciplined Broadway Artist and the myriad skills required in collaboration, interrelation, communication and human exploration. The goals are to expand and deepen students understanding and familiarity with all areas of Broadway Theater and to enhance their studies in human behavior, culture, intention and expression.  Through challenging music, dance, acting and, most importantly, the unique art form of “putting it all together”, taught by the best professionals on Broadway, StudentsLive prepares students to be highly competitive in whatever career they choose to pursue as well as prepare for the best universities and career opportunities possible.

 

Through StudentsLive’s Passport to Broadway Program, StudentsLive provides international and domestic high school and college students with the invaluable resources and insights to becoming a serious actor/performer in New York and worldwide.  During the course of StudentsLive’s time with the students, they broaden their knowledge of the importance of performance studies combining choreography, voice, and acting to achieve the skills of a “triple threat” and increase their competitive ability and skills in the Broadway Industry. At the end of the course the students perform a live, original “Broadway Show” for a select and invited audience of top-tier Broadway Professionals. In this intensive, students will also be exposed to the invaluable and often inaccessible resources New York Broadway Theater has to offer.

 

As part of the Program, participants experience Broadway like never before – by working with top Broadway Professionals as they rehearse and perform a specially composed medley of 40 quintessential Broadway songs that span the entire history of musical theater in the United States.  For one, two or three weeks (there are 3, 5, 10 and 18-day programs), participants work every day with a Director,  Broadway Choreographer, Dance Captain, and Musical Director, and meet with specially invited Broadway Guest Professionals who can illuminate students’ understanding of their particular field of expertise in musical theater.
