As with our Conservatory program, every director with BOTS has an advanced degree in the performing arts and/or commensurate professional and performance experience at the collegiate and professional level.
We believe that the success of an individual depends on how that student responds when challenged, and when high expectation and goals are set. The foundational principles acquired in the serious pursuit of any area of the arts will positively affect every aspect of an individual's life, including schooling and self-esteem. Our mission to revitalize theatre in communities through education and cultural access is fulfilled through this program.
By providing your child or yourself with the best education available, you are opening every window of opportunity.
Broadway On The Side is looking for youth for our upcoming BOTS Junior productions. Participants will enhance their singing, dancing, acting, and social skills as they learn an abridged version of a musical or one of our next MainStage productions. They will have the opportunity to receive feedback and mentorship from our seasoned BOTS performers as well as world-class direction from our highly qualified directors. See below for audition/registration information.

ABOUT BOTS JUNIOR SHOWS
A lot like our MainStage productions, BOTS Junior shows favor the cabaret style similar to a revue. Often times a performer is not cast in a role because they do not fit the director's vision which we understand and respect. What this can mean is that someone who may be cast as Cinderella may never get the chance to play a Wicked Step-Sister (or vice-versa) due to the constraints of casting a full-fledged musical. So what we do is something a little different, something that allows us to cast against or with the standard and gives our youth performers a chance to do something they may not otherwise have the opportunity to do. Maybe it's a role they are not the right gender for, maybe they like watching shows but rarely get to be in them, or maybe there's a wonderful song they would love to perform but probably never will because the show it is from is simply terrible. This is why we do what we do and hope you will join us!
