05 May 2014
The Broadway Dreams Foundation's summer performing arts tour, Take It To The Limit: Defining EXTA-Ordinary, will provide attendees training in various areas of a career in the performing arts.
The intensives presented by the national non-profit training program will offer attendees personalized musical theatre training and mentoring in acting, dance and vocal technique through week-long performing arts intensive workshops. Students will also learn how to improve their audition skills and have the opportunity to audition and perform for casting directors and agents from New York.
Following the sessions, attendees will perform in a concert alongside Broadway performers.
The tour will kick off May 31 at Hawkins School of Performing Arts in Sacramento, CA; followed by the Atlantic Lyric Theatre in Atlanta, GA; the Anne and Jerry Moss Theater at New Roads School in Los Angeles, CA; Omaha Performing Arts in Omaha, NE; Kimmel Center for Performing Arts in Philadelphia, PA; and Glimmerglass Festival in Cooperstown, NY.
"There are many performing arts programs to choose from," BDF executive director Annette Tanner said in a statement. "However, at BDF we go above and beyond to ensure that each student gets the training and connections they need to succeed in a very competitive industry. When you enroll in a BDF program, you're paying for a week, but I guarantee that you'll get a life-time of support."
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
