BroadwayCon Workshops

Ready to learn from the pros?

BroadwayCon Workshops are your chance to learn a new skill, hone your talents, and grow as a creator.

Status: Applications Closed

Deadline: June 22, 2022 by 11:59 PM ET

During the application process, you will be asked to select which classes you’d like to attend. You will also be given the option to choose whether you’d like to actively participate in a particular class, or just observe from the audience.

If you are an adult accompanying a minor – and you only want to watch the class, not participate – you do not need to submit your own application, as each minor may bring one adult into the room with them.

If you are applying to actively participate rather than observe or accompany a minor, you will be asked to submit videos that demonstrate your skill level. If you will be submitting videos, please have public YouTube links ready before you begin your application.

Frequently Asked Questions

Am I allowed to arrive late/leave early from a workshop?

In order to ensure minimum disruption to the workshop, there is a strict policy of no late entry into workshops. All participants and observers must arrive early to allow for time to check in prior to the scheduled starting time.

Attendees may leave a workshop early if they wish. However, there will be no re-entry allowed.

Can workshop acceptances be transferred to someone else?

No, due to the application screening process, we cannot allow workshop acceptances to be transferred.

Are parents allowed to observe their children in workshops?

Attendees under the age of 18 may bring one adult to supervise them during the workshops. The adult should not submit an application if they do not wish to participate. Those who are accompanying a minor should check in at the door with the minor.

How are attendees chosen for workshops?

Workshop participants are chosen based on a review of their application materials by the BroadwayCon staff. The criteria for selection may be different for each workshop and is determined in conference with the teaching artist who is teaching the workshop.

If I am accepted into a workshop but it is not my top choice, can I trade in my acceptance so that I can go to my top choice workshop?

No, we cannot trade workshops. All workshops have a limited capacity which will be filled through the application process. Workshop acceptances are not transferable.

Why is workshop attendance limited?

The number of participants will be determined by the teaching artist and based on how much time they are able to spend with each performer. The number of observers will be limited based on space constraints and in order to create an intimate, safe environment for the participants.

Can I observe a workshop?

BroadwayCon attendees who wish to observe a workshop but are not interested in participating will need to submit a workshop application. Please select “Observe” instead of “Participate.” Adults accompanying minors do not need to submit an application in order to observe a workshop the minor is attending.

Do I need to submit an audition video if I am only applying for observation?

No, applicants who wish to observe a workshop do not need to submit an application video, but doing so may give you a better chance of being selected.

If I’m selected to observe, is there a chance I’ll be chosen to participate?

All observers willing to participate should come prepared just in case a participant does not arrive and forfeits their spot.

If I am not accepted into a workshop, is there a waiting list?

There is no online waiting list for workshops. Attendees are welcome to join the on-site standby line but admission cannot be guaranteed.

Do I need to have a ticket to BroadwayCon before applying for a workshop?

Yes. Workshop applications are only open to ticketed BroadwayCon attendees. You must have a ticket for the date of your workshop in order to attend the workshop.

I have a Gold Pass for BroadwayCon. Does this grant me priority access to workshops?

All BroadwayCon attendees are given an equal opportunity of being accepted for workshops. Selection is based on their application materials and the type of ticket will not be considered.

I have a Platinum Pass for BroadwayCon. Does this grant me priority access to workshops?

All BroadwayCon attendees are given an equal opportunity of being accepted for workshops. Selection is based on their application materials and the type of ticket will not be considered.

Can I pay money to guarantee myself a space in the workshops?

BroadwayCon workshops are included in the price of the BroadwayCon ticket. There are no extra fees for workshops and we cannot be bribed.

Can I edit my application after submission?

While we ask that you be as thorough as possible when completing your application, you may make changes after submitting. Please email workshops@broadwaycon.com with your full name and order ID so we can find your entry. Please do not submit a new application.

When will acceptances be sent?

Attendees will be notified of their acceptances on Thursday, June 30, 2022.

BroadwayCon attendees who wish to observe a workshop but are not interested in participating will need to submit a workshop application. Please select “Observe” instead of “Participate.” Adults accompanying minors do not need to submit an application in order to observe a workshop the minor is attending.

What do I need to prepare for my application?

The application form will ask you to choose which workshops you’d like to be considered for, whether you’d like to participate or observe in each class, and to rank these roles based on your order of preference. You will then be asked to submit videos of yourself performing either a non-musical scene, a song, or a dance. If you are applying to multiple workshops, we strongly encourage submitting videos that match the style of the workshop.

Is there a limit to the number of workshops I can apply for?

There is no limit to the number of workshops you can apply for. However, we do ask that you only apply for workshops that you really want to attend.
