Dear parents, families and friends of Kids on Broadway,

We hope this email finds everyone safe, healthy and sane.

We are writing to let you know about a brand new program that we are very excited about!  This summer will be the first in 20 years that Kids on Broadway’s ‘Summer Music Theatre Camp’ will not be putting a musical up onstage.  This is a huge disappointment to us even though it is the responsible, and only, choice.  We will deeply miss seeing your children every day for our usual three-week session; getting to know them and watching them grow and come together in that final production we do every summer!  Like with everything else in the world right now, this is a transitional year for our team. That said, we remain committed to keeping ‘Summer Music Theatre’ running and so in the spirit of ingenuity and community, the staff of ‘Kids on Broadway’ has designed an online summer theatre training program running THIS summer in lieu of our usual summer camp.

If we have piqued your interest – please read on for more details!

IN CLOSING…

WHY QMT?
Because THE SHOW MUST GO ON!
Just because we can’t be singing, dancing and acting together physically doesn’t mean that learning and training should stop!
Sign up and learn from some of the country’s top artists and educators!
Connect with other theatre loving young people!
Keep our community alive and active!
Make new memories. This time will pass and we can say that we managed to create, learn and have fun!
Hope to see you this summer over ZOOM!
