About Project Broadway
Project Broadway s a 501c3 nonprofit, dedicated to fostering participation in enriching theater arts educational experiences for students who may not otherwise have access to an education in the arts. Project Broadway offers scholarships for children to participate in intensive theater training programs and enriching workshops focusing on self-confidence and exploration of the theater arts. These unique experiences help nurture the development of important life skills, encourage self-expression, and motivate authentic development for students of all ages.
Project Broadway is proud to provide free school workshops for at-risk youth, special workshops for children in pediatric hospital programs, anti-bullying workshops, master classes focused on the empowerment of young women through the arts and full scholarships for students to participate in camps, classes, intensives and productions.
Performance is powerful and empowering; it helps all children in many ways including teaching them to take ownership of their own thoughts, stories, talents and abilities. Research suggests that creativity helps children maintain good mental and physical health. There is evidence that participating in the creative arts can improve student literacy and overall academic achievement.
Scholarship eligibility is based on financial need and determined by ability demonstrated by audition. Opportunities are available to all children from the general public. These scholarships may provide the only opportunity for children in need to experience visual and performing arts, offering the children sense of accomplishment, personal locus of control, self-esteem, and a desire to connect with their community. Children interested in A Project Broadway Scholarship must complete a scholarship application and in some cases audition for the artistic director and musical director.

The Mosaic Training Program was created by Tony Award-Winner Karen “KO” Olivo specifically for Project Broadway. This multi-week virtual program offers high school-aged BiPOC performers the chance to train with the top performers and teachers working in New York and beyond. When a student is accepted to Mosaic, they do not pay a nickel for the training the receive.
One practice and encouragement that was so amazing during the Mosaic program was to consistently acknowledge the people who have occupied and toiled the land we get to perform art on ages ago. We have looked up the specific tribe that inhabited the land where we appear tonight, and gratefully acknowledge the Munsee Lenape people.
Land acknowledgment is only one small part of supporting Indigenous communities. We hope our land acknowledgment statement will inspire others to stand with us in solidarity with Native nations.
Thank you to every single person involved in making tonight happen.
