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

Broadway Theatre League’s 2015-2016 season includes:

-Jersey Boys– September 17, 18, 19, & 20
-Bullets Over Broadway– October 1 & 2
-Wizard of Oz– November 27 & 28
-Once– January 12 & 13
-42nd Street– February 9 & 10
-Ragtime– April 6 & 7

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 Utica.  Some critiques may be posted on the BU 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.
