Broadway Babies – on Their Way to the Great White Way!

Emily Rozek warms up students before dance class
Segerstrom Center’s popular Six Days of Broadway musical theater summer camps just finished another exciting year June 23 through July 6. During the week-long sessions, students learned and participated in musical performance, audition technique, scene work, dance and much more. Tony Award® nominee and Broadway/film star Erin Dilly led the program along with Broadway veterans Stephen Buntrock, Danny Gurwin, Hank Stratton and Emily Rozek.

Participants honed their skills as they got the opportunity to interpret and perform assigned scenes and musical numbers from hit Broadway shows. During dance class, students learned choreography from shows such as Thoroughly Modern Millie, The Will Rogers Follies and Catch Me If You Can. The “acting on film” session featured students working on-camera as they practiced cold readings in front of their peers. The program culminated with an open classroom session showcasing the week’s efforts to family and friends.
