Students On Broadway

Arts Education is a vital part of Broadway Utica’s mission.


Broadway Utica’s Students on Broadway!

The Broadway Theater League of Utica is committed to the youth in our area. Students on Broadway is a program geared towards all children who are enrolled in a local area school from K-12th grade. Our initiative is to unleash the creative potential in children, have them become familiar with the theatre world and live arts, attend Broadway Shows at no charge, enjoy performances with family and friends and so much more… all with little to no cost!

“One of my favorite things to do is to bring the kids I mentor to a Broadway show at the Stanley Theatre presented by Broadway Utica. The excitement and awe on their face when seeing the Stanley Theatre for the first time and watching them have so much fun during the shows is priceless. Without the generosity of the Broadway Theater League of Utica donors and sponsors, these kids would never have the opportunity to experience this. Utica is extremely lucky to have these events right in our city. We appreciate the contributors for allowing us to attend the shows at no cost to the child.” Gina Buono, ICAN service provider/mentor

The Students on Broadway program is truly one-of-a-kind and extremely unique in the theatre world. This is the perfect opportunity for Broadway to foster and encourage the creative process for children K-12. It also allows them to see first hand all the efforts that go into a live production.  Our goal is to engage, teach and inspire all youth with a passion for the arts, their community and live theater. Education is a lifelong journey that opens doors to those that are constantly wanting to learn more and shine bright!

We will come together as one and access the arts to capture and cultivate all talent. The Broadway Theatre League of Utica wants to have a presence in every elementary, middle and high school within our area along with group homes, mentoring programs, childcare settings and much more. Exposure to the arts, not only for singing and dancing, but for every aspect of theatre. From stage building, song writing, union jobs, ticketing, management and so much, we will be able to cover and achieve each goal.
