Broadway I

Broadway I Overview

LINX Theater Broadway professionally executes shows that are familiar to the Musical Theater and Broadway following. This 2-hour class helps performers perfect their abilities in musical theater as they learn skills that will help them excel in future B.F.A. programs and professional auditions.

In Broadway I, students begin their study of famous theatrical titles as they work toward a final production that is entertaining and enriching. Students learn story structure and how to engage an audience.

This spring, our youngest Broadway performers (Broadway I and II) experience their main performance in The Black Box Theater at the Walnut Hill School for the Arts in Natick. This professional venue is an immense benefit for children and their families and friends as everyone shares a more intimate setting, where actors can be seen from all angles up close, and cast mates can more confidently project their young voices and maneuver a smaller stage with confidence. As a bonus, all actors delight in joining the Broadway III and IV performers on the big stage on the Walnut Hill School for the Arts’ Main Stage, as part of the ensemble and/or large scenes during one of Broadway III and IV’s large stage performances on the weekend. These children will truly get a taste of what the next level performance has in store for them.

Your child will learn:

  • Improved vocal range and projection
  • To combine voice, body and emotion into dynamic performances
  • To study Broadway classics
  • To study famous theatrical composers
  • Character development
  • Commitment to projects and fellow players
  • A professional approach

Prepare to travel to a far away place with Aladdin Jr.; based on the 1992 Academy Award-winning film and the 2014 hit Broadway show about the “diamond in the rough” street rat who learns that his true worth lies deep within.

Based on one of Roald Dahl’s most poignantly quirky stories, Roald Dahl's James and the Giant Peach JR. is a "masterpeach" of a tale. When James is sent by his conniving aunts to chop down their old fruit tree, he discovers a magic potion that grows a tremendous peach, rolls into the ocean and launches a journey of enormous proportions. James befriends a collection of singing insects that ride the giant piece of fruit across the ocean, facing hunger, sharks and plenty of disagreements along the way.
