Your Guide to the "Wild Party" of BroadwayCon

News   Your Guide to the "Wild Party" of BroadwayCon
 
BroadwayCon attendees have so much in common, it's the perfect place to make new friends and have a ton of fun. Mingle at meet-ups, test your collective knowledge at quiz competitions and belt your heart out at sing-alongs to find the Glinda to your Elphaba.

Friday morning kicks off the convention with nine different meetups (four at 10 AM and five at 11 AM) for you to find those who love the same Broadway you do! Whether you're in a group and want to expand your circle, or you're coming to Con on your own, we want you to make friends!

It wouldn't be a Broadway gathering if there wasn't a chance to sing your favorite show tunes. Join the first sing-along of the weekend, the Classics Singalong Friday at 6 PM. If the ballads of the Golden Era are not your thing, join the Modern Music(als) Singalong on Saturday at 8 PM. Or, if you want to get really specific, sing charts during the "Pippins and Wickeds and Kinkies, Matildas, and Mormonses" Singalong on Sunday at 3 PM.

Want to trot out your competitive side? If you think you know more about Broadway than even the most rabid fan, prove your knowledge at Saturday's Broadway Team Quiz at 8:30 PM!

The weekend is chock full of amazing panels, but we know you also want to see your favorite stars show off their talent. We've got exclusive performances for you to enjoy, beginning with the BroadwayCon 2016 Opening at 3:30 PM on Friday. Later that night, swing by the BroadwayCon Jukebox at 9:30 PM. You request the non-Broadway song and singers like Kerry Butler, Jenn Colella, Stark Sands and Anthony Rapp will perform on the spot. For our night owls, don't miss Don't Quit Your Night Job at 11:30 PM on Friday — the musical improv and sketch comedy show. On Saturday at 11 PM, late-night brings The First Annual BroadwayCon Cabaret. Sunday, early birds can catch The BroadwayCon Variety Hour at 10 AM where Broadway celebs show off their "special skills." And if you're a Seth Rudetsky fan, don't miss Sunday's Obsessed! Live: Disaster! Edition at 11 AM.
