Founded and run by Broadway and musical theatre professionals, Broadway Bootcamp offers the ultimate Fairfield County summer theatre camp experience.
In just three weeks, we'll guide your child from casting and classes to rehearsals and a fully-staged, costumed musical production choreographed, staged, and produced by theatre professionals with Broadway experience. Each session will conclude with two weekend performances professionally staged at a local theater. Click here to see a list of our previous productions.
To ensure an optimal camp experience, every camper will be assigned a part that is important to the creation and presentation of the session's musical production. Click here to read about our casting philosophy.

At Broadway Bootcamp every child is an actor, every child is a singer, and yes, every child is a dancer.
Our improvisation-based acting curriculum is taught at both an age-specific and a mixed grade-level basis, providing campers the opportunity to learn from their teachers and from each other. Music and vocal production is incorporated into every camper's daily routine. Novice and experienced singers alike will receive useful and understandable information about how to sing to the best of their ability through breathing and vocal exercises, healthy phonation and projection instruction, and group music rehearsals.
Dance is an integral element of the Broadway Bootcamp experience. Led by seasoned choreographers, campers of all skill levels work together to learn dance combinations both for fun and in preparation for their performance.
At Broadway Bootcamp every child is an actor, every child is a singer, and yes, every child is a dancer. From our physical warm-up that starts every day with stretching, core-strengthening, aerobic and across the floor exercises, to small group dance classes and choreography rehearsals, each camper learns how to execute basic choreographic elements and how to put these elements together in a fully-staged musical production.
