CELEBRATING 30 YEARS! Inside Broadway’s Classroom Residencies Continue to Shine! Inside Broadway’s classroom residency programs once again proved to be a hit with students and teachers throughout the five boroughs! These residency programs take place during the school day and allow the students to push their desks back so they can dance and sing! These budding stars work with an Inside Broadway Teaching Artist to learn the ins and outs of musical theatre. At the end of the residency the students perform what they have developed for their friends, teachers and families in the school’s auditorium. 2 1) Teaching Artist Abby Jones with students from P.S.130 M 2) Student from P.S. 128 K 1 SPOTLIGHT ON WEEHAWKEN This year marks the 10th anniversary of Inside Broadway’s partnership with Weehawkin High School. Over the years, our Teaching Artists have worked with the dedicated staff to present such memorable productions as Bye Bye, Birdie, Little Shop of Horrors and Damn Yankees. This past year, the school performed Rogers & Hammerstein’s Cinderella which played to sold-out crowds and in spring 2012 they will present The Wiz. Broadway is very much alive in Weehawken NJ!
