1. I would like to participate/enroll my child in the weekly classes of the Broadway
Musical Theatre Program; do you offer classes outside of Key Biscayne?
While members of our creative team work privately with selected individuals throughout
South Florida, the Musical Theatre program is only offering group classes on Key
Biscayne presently. Going forward we expect to be offering the same program in the
greater Miami area – check our website for continually updated information regarding
group classes outside of Key Biscayne and leave your contact information with us to
receive additional updates.
2. I am not an equity actor, can I audition for your large productions?
Auditions for Broadway Musical Theatre’s large scale productions are open to anyone
who desires to perform on stage. What our casting directors look for is individual talent,
a passion for musical theatre and that intense hunger to develop one’s ability to perform
on stage. Simply put – experience is not necessary but all of the above is.
3. I am XX years old, am I too young/old to audition?
It all depends on the role, however if you think you’re a fit see question #2 to see what
we look for.
4. I am currently attending a theater program at an academic institution; can I
audition/participate in a Broadway Musical Theatre production? If I perform with
Broadway Musical Theatre, can I perform with other groups?
Yes – and yes. While a solid understanding of the fundamentals and theory of musical
theatre is indispensable, it is our firm belief that practical “onstage” experience is the
scarcest resource of all and thus the most difficult for aspiring performers to attain. We
strongly believe that any limitations placed on aspiring individuals to perform on stage
only serves to hinder their development and as such - we strongly encourage all of our
talent to seek out any opportunities to perform on stage – whether they are within
Broadway Musical Theatre or with any outside productions.
5. How are casting decisions made?
Broadway Musical Theatre prides itself on having one of the most transparent and
egalitarian processes of cast selection. Simply stated, all casting is done purely on merit
– meaning the most talented individual will always be selected for the role. While some
organizations, may base their selections on seniority (ie: juniors and seniors only) – it is
our firm tenet that talent, regardless of age, should be the ultimate arbiter in the selection
process. All auditions are done in person and are performed within view of all other
applicants as well as our casting directors. Our have many years of
experience in various facets of the entertainment industry and firmly believe that outside
of the ivory towers of academia, aspiring performers will need to be prepared to be
measured against their peers. In short, casting for principal roles will be competitive,
open to everyone, and completely transparent. Gaining the experience auditioning is the
first step in developing the confidence to perform on stage – therefore all applicants,
whether or not they are selected for a role will receive feedback regarding their audition.
6. I am not an actor, singer or dancer but have a strong interest in working
backstage in a production, is that possible? Do I have to be in the union to be a
part of the backstage crew?
While Broadway Musical Theatre’s main focus is on the development of the individual
performer, we have on occasion developed highly motivated individuals for roles
backstage – light/sound technician, stage manager, set design ect. As Broadway
Musical Theatre is non-union, we are able to be highly innovative, flexible and extremely
efficient when it comes to our - the success of which attests to the
dynamism and passion of our backstage crew and technicians.
