If you are an adult bitten by the show biz bug --– if you dream of singing and dancing or acting on stage in New York – then Broadway Fantasy Camp (BFC), broadwayfancamp.com, is the ultimate experience for you or someone you love. Rock ‘n rollers have their Fantasy Camp, so do sports enthusiasts. Now it’s Broadway’s turn as Broadway Fantasy Camp puts each participant in the spotlight. Each five day session begins with auditions, headshots taken by a professional photographer (with each participant able to keep the finished product). Then, revue rehearsals created specially for each group of participants around the work of a Broadway songwriter or genre, culminating in a private performance for friends and family on a bona fide New York stage. We end with a classic Broadway-style opening night party at a legendary Times Square eatery.
Three five-day sessions are currently being developed for the Summer 2012 program, drawn from some of the greatest names and best-loved material in the American Songbook. Included in each of the five-day sessions are seminars on applicable elements of the Broadway experience (such as stage make-up), as well as end-of-day sessions with actors, directors and designers working in today’s Broadway theatre. Shorter 1-3 day experiences are also available.
“We are excited to expose our participants to an authentic Broadway-caliber experience in a friendly and nurturing environment,” said Lauren Class Schneider, founder of Broadway Fantasy Camp. “We are gearing BFC to adults of all ages and levels of expertise; our only real requirement is enthusiasm. We want participants to live out a dream or two – creating a lifetime of memories while they’re at it. Attending a show is one experience, now you can experience being IN a show,” adds Schneider, “Also, it’s not too late to give BFC as a holiday gift!”
