Theatre Tulsa is bringing Broadway Bootcamp back this summer – and we’ve made it better than ever!
Broadway Bootcamp gives young people the opportunity to learn about musical theatre in a fun, supportive environment – surrounded by friends and taught by a team of Tulsa’s most experienced, enthusiastic theatre directors and teachers.
This summer we’ll be working on a fully staged production of the hit Broadway musical 13. The musical will run during the SummerStage Festival in the Williams Theatre at the Tulsa PAC, July 11-13 – the largest venue during one of the busiest weekends! It’s a huge vote of trust in the quality and artistry these talented young people bring to the stage.
Several years ago, I was involved in a production of 13 at St. Luke’s United Methodist Church in OKC. For all the youth involved it was a profound, moving experience – and I’ve long since wanted to bring that same opportunity to Tulsa youth.
13 is one of the only musicals written specifically for middle and high school students. The play’s themes center on the challenges teenagers face and how important it is to make the right choices, to rely on your friends and family and to stay true to yourself. There is so much truth in the show. Anyone can relate to its heart, its honesty and its empowering message.
More than anything, 13 shows the power of theatre – to provide a creative outlet for expression and to inspire healthy discussion about the joys and trials of being a teenager today. With positive, nurturing leadership, this opportunity for young people can transcend any other performance experience they’ve ever had. The message and heart of 13 will inspire them in their everyday lives as they grow into positive, confident young men and women.
I know, because this is exactly what happened with 13 in OKC.
Theatre Tulsa’s youth programs strive to give young people the most diverse and professional training available in Tulsa. The opportunity to perform 13 is a huge step in that direction. With Broadway Bootcamp, we will guide our students into becoming great performers – and exceptional young men and women.
