Here’s what some of our alumni have to say about the Broadway Teachers’ Workshop:

“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. I have been driving my friends/colleagues crazy, because I have yet to stop talking about the wonderful time I had. As a music educator I have attended countless music workshops, but the BTW was by far the most relevant, exciting workshop I have ever attended, and I look forward to returning.”

- Lori E., Willoughby Middle School

“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., Boys & Girls Club of Souhegan Valley

“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 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 Bway community we were able to meet. Can’t wait for the next opportunity!”

- Michelle B. , Duchesne Academy
