Production Program

Young performing artists, musicians and technicians in this tuition-free program engage in an intensive rehearsal and performance process, learning both the artistic and technical standards and complexities in developing and performing a Broadway-level production.

To participate in the program, the young talent must go through a highly competitive audition process held in March/April each year. Audition information notices are posted in newspapers across the State, including Backstage, and on this site under "Upcoming Events."
