Do you know a high school student interested in theatre; encourage them to apply to become a Broadway Theatre League Youth Ambassador! Each year, BTL chooses two students from each of the surrounding high schools who are given Broadway Theatre League season tickets.  The program is in its third year, and is named after late local educator and BTL Board Member, Bernadette Eichler.

Broadway Theatre League’s 2014-2015 season includes:

  • Annie, September 23 & 24, 2014
  • Elf – The Musical,  November 10 & 11, 2014
  • Nice Work If You Can Get It, January 27 & 28, 2015
  • Sister Act, February 17 & 18, 2015
  • Beauty and the Beast, April 7 & 8, 2015
  • Anything Goes, April 21 & 22, 2015

In exchange for the season subscription, students are required to post their thoughts about each show on Facebook and/or Twitter and submit a short critique of each show to Broadway Theatre League.  Some critiques may be posted on the BTL blog and/or website.

The goal of the program is to engage area teens and encourage their interest in theatre. The students’ interests can be in any area including acting, producing, management, choreography, lighting, sound, costume or set design.
