YAP Seniors 20-2021

BROADWAY UTICA’S 2021-2022 LINDA LEOGRANDE SCHOLARSHIP RECIPIENTS

CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL THE 2020-2021 BERNADETTE A. EICHLER YOUTH AMBASSADOR PROGRAM SENIORS

Our 2020-2021 students have been interrupted by Covid-19 but still influential in each other’s lives and a true asset to Broadway Theatre League of Utica. These amazing young adults did not have a traditional year of Broadway Shows at the Stanley, or pre-talks with cast members and class trips to the city but that didn’t stop us from meeting virtually and participating in community events.

Below, read what the 2020-21 Yappers had to say about the program
