The BTW was a life changing experience! Everything I could have wanted and more! I took away so much knowledge and ideas that I have already been implementing in my home theater, and I owe it all to the Broadway Teachers Workshop!

Thank you so very much for the most inspiring and very deeply meaningful online BTW. The workshops were wonderful.

It really felt inclusive and worthwhile. All of the guests as well as yours and Gordon’s kind and caring introductions and being available for help when needed made things seamless and almost like it was in-person. Thank you again for bringing Broadway to us in the virtual worlds along with incredible experiences and insight into our craft.

I wanted to let you know how much I thoroughly enjoyed every workshop. This is truly one of the best professional development session I’ve attended in my over 20 years of teaching. Definitely will be back.  Thank you so much everything!

We really enjoyed the teacher’s workshop this week. The instruction was incredible exceeded our expectations.

I have lost count of how many times I have attended the workshops and it never ceases to amaze me that I always walk away with new insights and perspectives.

I also wanted to say thank you for a phenomenal experience. As advertised this was exactly the recharge we needed and then some! What a gift our experience has been.  I’m incredibly grateful to have found your program and for the work that you do.

Thank you for another wonderful BTW!! Our group looks forward to this every year, and we always bring something back to our theatre that we learned in our workshops!

Krista W. 

Thank you so much for offering this – I love having the virtual option to participate and attend!!! It’s so fun to meet teachers from all over the world and share ideas, as well as hear from so many artists. I will definitely be back next year!!!

Thank you for putting together yet another fantastic experience. This was my fourth time. Always inspirational, interesting and informative. Truly a great thing you guys do for the teaching/performing world.

Lorin M. 

I know my students will be greatly impacted by all the new tools I’ve been able to put in my theatrical toolbox these last few days! It will be much appreciated- so from them to me to you- THANK YOU!!

Jesse W.

There are no words for me to thank you enough for all that you provide.  I enjoyed every single minute of last week’s workshop.  I have only been to two, but they have enriched my life in so many ways.  You do a magnificent job of providing the best speakers and performers and shows.  I learned so much, and I find myself hanging onto every word and cherishing every moment.

Ann B., Chicago

I cannot express enough how much I appreciate the effort and time you all put into the BTW this year.  This first experience was fantastic and I was continually amazed at the access, quality of sessions, performances, and genuine desire to bring together the academic and professional worlds of Theatre.  It was simply one of the finest and most energizing professional workshops in which I participated.

Scott W., Kinard Junior High School

Thank you so much for such an incredible workshop series. I left each one so inspired and lifted, and I learned so much invaluable information across the board. Every panelist you invited was a wealth of information and expertise, and I was so inspired to hear from other educators around the country about their experiences! In such a tumultuous and dark time (especially for our students), this was a warm and bright light. It’s so heartwarming to see how we can still bring a fabulous artistic and educational experience to our students, even in the midst of a global pandemic when so much of their school experience has been uprooted.

Thank you for being such incredible champions of theater education! I’m honored to be a part of this community.

Dara Z., St. Matthews Parish School

I want you to know what a profound impact your workshops have had on my teaching and directing. I have been teaching theatre for 35 years and you know the old saying, “You can’t teach an old dog new tricks.”  Well, your workshops have inspired this old dog to revamp and re-think most aspects of her curriculum. Last summer’s production workshop inspired me to devise sets which would transform themselves into another setting while onstage. We’ve added a wealth of props whose concept was founded in our amazing BTW props workshop. My students practiced new techniques with renewed confidence when auditioning for my shows and for admission to our Dallas Arts Magnet school, Booker T. Washington. Stephen Sondheim’s stories about the impact teachers had on his life made clear the awesome responsibilities each of us has every day in the classroom. Thank you, thank you, for this incredible learning opportunity. I look forward to seeing you every July.

Susan M., Dallas, TX

I just received news today that I achieve National Board certification as a teacher of theater. My single highest score was a demonstration lesson based on a status activity which I got at your workshop. Thank you so much.  That was a great three days and I hope to make many more trips back to future workshops. 

Charlie J., Los Angeles

I have come back to New Hampshire with so many new ideas:  I am revitalized and more motivated than ever to make our theater programming dynamite! THANK YOU!!!

Robin L., Souhegan Valley

The Broadway Teachers Workshop is an outstanding opportunity to experience the richness that great Theatre artists and productions have to offer.  I have worked with the Broadway Teachers Workshop staff for a number of years, and they are cutting-edge planners of great educational experiences!

Ann McDounough, Ph.D., University of Nevada Las Vegas

Having now taken this course for the third consecutive year I am often asked by my colleagues if I’m still getting anything out of this….the answer is simply OH YES! I am able to take new skills, marketing ideas and more back to our group. I look forward to many more years to come as well.

Sheryl A.,  Marquee Productions

I just wanted to thank you for creating a marvelous experience for me! The BTW session B was so incredibly arranged. All of the presenters were professional, prepared and patient.  You have designed a brilliant springboard for theatre educators. I feel so recharged and inspired- sincerely, thank you!

MaryLee D., Sacred Heart Academy 

I just wanted to say a huge thank you for all of the work that you both put into the workshop.  I did not know what to expect and was so completely blown away by what you accomplished.  The past few days have inspired me, educated me, refilled me and entertained me.  I have been so blessed by this experience.  I took valuable lessons from each session.  I made amazing friends and I connected with people that are in my field doing the exact same job I am doing. Thank you again for all of the time, thought, planning and execution!

J.J. D.

The Broadway Teacher’s Workshop was the most fantastic learning experience I’ve ever had! I am still on a high from those fabulous 3 days.  Not only did I get the “inside scoop” on how it’s done, I came away with something more valuable than that. The passion and love for their craft was obvious when each actor, director, and theatre professional spoke.  I can’t thank you enough. It’s a week I will always remember and one I will be sure to return to again and again.

Adrienne S.

I had a wonderful time – it was so affirming to see the passion, the level of experience and acceptance as a theater professional and an educator, not only from fellow teachers and colleagues, but from the Broadway community we were able to meet.  Can’t wait for the next opportunity!
