Berklee on Broadway: New York City Spring Break Trip
Meet with Successful Musical Theater Industry Professionals and Alumni in the Big Apple
Academic Affairs, Faculty Development, the Career Center, and the Professional Performance Division are supporting the third annual Berklee on Broadway trip to New York City for up to 20 students who are serious about exploring careers in musical theater.
The purpose of this trip is to expose currently enrolled Berklee students to the career tracks within the musical theater industry. Born out of the desire to generate a showcase for casting directors and industry professionals, this trip will cater to student interests, with speakers including actors, directors, agents, union representatives, and instrumentalists. Alumni speakers will focus on the importance of building relationships and strengthening personal abilities within this highly competitive field. Though exposure to industry professionals is not the focus of this excursion, it will inevitably be included.
