Announcing 2017 BAC season

Posted: March 1, 2017 in Uncategorized

bac-2017-flyerThe Broadway Artists Connection (BAC) is accepting submissions for our 2017 season.  If you would like to perform among our Broadway Pros and join our community of artists, please do submit a video.  All BAC shows are hosted by a Broadway Veteran, feature several Broadway artists and then our selected friends (from those aspiring to long time pros) also get a chance to sing. Everyone in attendance is a valuable part of our community of artists & celebrating our love for musical theater.

Dates: Mondays (6:30pm): April 17th, May 22nd, June 19th, Sept. 18th, Oct. 23rd and Nov. 20th.  If you would like to be considered, send a brief video of yourself with the requested date to info@broadwayconnects.org. (All ages are welcome to submit – those under 18 please include your age in your submission)
*Please note that there is a $20 participation fee which is simply your ticket to the event (no food & drink minimum applies to performers*

Selected artists get to try out a song (or dance) and also make meaningful industry connections.  Artists at our events find mentors, learn theatre tips, often learn of gigs and are encouraged in their artistic journeys.  We also have a New York Casting Director attend who is available for some feedback and will crown one singer the “future of Broadway.”

Broadway Artists, this is your time to shine and try out that new song or number in a supportive environment.  You will also inspire the next generation and be a part of our mentoring program.  It all happens at the events.  To participate email info@broadwayconnects.org (no submission required for Broadway artists).

The Broadway Artists Connection is a charitable nonprofit that nurtures artists of all levels (Broadway, aspiring, re-entering & under-served) by providing opportunities for them to perform, make industry connections and participate in mentoring programs.
