In-Person Session II: July 14 - July 27, 2024

Interested in learning how a Broadway show gets made? When you enroll in the Broadway at Marist program this summer, you get exclusive access to the industry’s top professionals through the College’s collaboration with New York Stage and Film, a Manhattan-based company with a history of developing world-renowned stories (including Hamilton, Hadestown, and American Idiot)!

This summer program is led by Marist theater professor, and Director of Marist’s spring musical, Andrew Karl. You will have the chance to look behind the curtain and learn how the top theatre makers bring your favorite shows to life. Through intensive study of the history and performance of musical theatre, students will expand their confidence and presentation skills. The program includes a trip to see a Broadway show in New York City and culminates in a live performance crafted by the students themselves! Please join us to learn how the show leaps from the page to the stage!
