BroadwayKids™ is a program teaching children the elements of performance as required for musical theatre performance. In this course, appreciation of musical theatre is inculcated with the special skills of singing, dancing, acting and stage presentation. Selected repertoire and acts that appeal to children are taught and through these studies children are trained to perform in revues as well as be part of a cast of a musical.
The BroadwayKids™ was established in 2005 with a repertoire that spans from “Annie” to “Hairspray”. They have performed at such venues such as the Esplanade and the Arts House as well as many exciting performances such as the SSO gala night, SINCERE-MILK Fundraiser and the opening of the Jacob Ballas Garden at their carnival fundraiser! They even performed at our fundraising concert, "Kids Performing For Hope" on June 4th 2008 to help the Sichuan earthquake victims!
