KIDS DO BROADWAY
Student productions directed by Pushcart directors and teaching artists. Over an average period of 12 to 16 weeks, familiar Broadway favorites are designed, costumed, rehearsed and presented by students with the involvement of teachers, parents, and camp counselors.
Scripts originally produced by Pushcart and in our repertoire are adapted for schools and other groups to be performed by youth ensembles of up to 50 students. Directed by Pushcart faculty, or licensed to organizations for self-production.
