Studies have shown that students involved in theatre develop better cognitive skills, exhibit higher self-esteem, build collaborative and social skills, display better study habits and consistently perform higher on tests.

The Role of Musicals in Education

"Putting on a school musical is not a frivolous thing. It's part of education. It requires imagination, creativity and inventiveness." Freddie Gershon, CEO of Music Theatre International (MTI).

The process of putting on a show cultivates school spirit and generates community support.
It helps students make intellectual connections across a variety of subjects.
Teachers can use the musical as context for teaching History, Science and English. Art, Music and Physical Education classes can be geared towards creating props, learning songs and practicing dance steps.

Benefits to Students

The success of musicals in schools may best be measured by the self-confidence, discipline, character, cooperation and self-esteem instilled in the children who have participated in the shows, as they master the diverse skills necessary to present a musical.

Marked increases have been noted in student’s creativity, teamwork, leadership, responsibility and commitment. Involvement also helps students improve their time management, communication and interpersonal skills.

The Broadway Junior Collection

Developed by educators and designed for the energies and attention spans of younger performers, this collection features Disney favorites, tailored to the needs of young people and schools.
The shows have been adapted into either JUNIOR (60 minute) or KIDS (30 minute) shows.
The music is written in keys appropriate for developing voices and all shows can be expanded to accommodate as many performers as can fit on your stage.
