Crane River Theater’s Backstage Workshop is going virtual this year with an interactive Broadway experience. Backstage is the perfect way to kick-start your ’21-’22 One-Act, Speech, and Performing Arts season with advice from professional artists and educators.
Created specifically for Nebraska high school students, this unique 4 and 1/2-hour fully virtual training session allows teachers to gather young artists in their school auditorium or large multi-purpose space with access to a video projection screen to experience a day’s worth of inspirational interviews, special performances, and action-packed learning sessions.
Students can participate in a Spotlight Scholarship contest judged by special guest artists with a $500 scholarship prize for the winning student! An exciting addition to this year’s event is the Broadway Musical Theater Showcase where schools can submit a recording of a Musical Theater number of their choice. Winning submissions from both contests will be shared during the event with industry professionals and schools from across the state.
For a one-time registration fee, students can experience Backstage: A Virtual Broadway Experience with renowned Broadway artists and educators! More information regarding featured artists will be released soon!
The current registration fee for the program is $500/school. Crane River Theater recently received support from a private grant to offer this program for $100 to the first 20 registering schools! Email Education Director, Matthew Briggs (firstname.lastname@example.org) to take part in this special offer. Act fast because space is limited.
