The Gershons, who created the Stephen Sondheim Inspirational Teacher Awards, underwrite the July 9-12 event. The educators were selected during the Junior Theatre Festival in Atlanta, GA, last January.
Leading the workshops will be Carlyle, Tesori (Shrek, Fun Home), Beguelin (Aladdin, The Wedding Singer), Tony-winning lighting designer Ken Billington (Chicago, Sweeney Todd) and sound designer Matt Kraus (Liza's at the Palace).
The teachers will also attend Disney's Aladdin and a developmental presentation of Peter Pan JR. Backstage Broadway tours are also planned.
"The weekend will fully immerse the teachers in the Broadway world and provide one-of-a-kind learning opportunities for the teachers to take back to their schools, students and communities," Gershon said in a statement. "These teachers do inspiring work with limited financial resources. We want to give them the opportunity to live the Broadway experience and interact with top professionals to reward them for all they do to introduce the next generations to Broadway and musical theatre."
The participating teachers include Danelle Cauley, Miriam Reynold, Carli Roye, Tessa Derfner, Brian Seagraves, Kelleybrooke Brown, Mary Katherine Smith-Gall and Sue Booton.
