The First Lady invited a group of 40 talented high school students to an all-day symposium Nov. 16 at the White House covering careers in theatre. Their activities were filmed by Zero Visibility/The Weinstein Co. for broadcast on the TLC special.
The symposium included master classes in acting, directing, hair/make-up/costume design, music composition and musical theatre, along with a Q&A with the Broadway stars and, in the evening, performances featuring material from musicals Finding Neverland, Fun Home, An American in Paris, On Your Feet!, School of Rock and Something Rotten!
