The intensive training is scheduled for May 23-June 27 at the York Theatre at the Citigroup Center. Open to individuals aged 18-27, the cost of the program is $2,150. The five-week program will culminate with a performance of an original musical revue at the York Theatre. Participants, according to press notes, "will explore and perform new musical theatre compositions by emerging writers whose work has been featured at the York. Seminars with musical theatre professionals will be a unique feature of the program. Students will have the opportunity to see musicals on and Off-Broadway and to perform at the Oscar Hammerstein Award gala dinner given annually by the York Company.
