The City of Sandy Springs and City Springs Theatre Company are excited to offer season two of NextGen Broadway, a musical theatre camp for the next generation of artists and audiences. This musical theatre intensive will provide young performers the opportunity to work on all three essential disciplines that make up musical theatre: singing, dancing, and acting!

This year, there will be 2 weeks of camp, focusing on two different age groups of rising 3rd – 5th grades and rising 6th – 8th grades. Each group will enjoy a week of light-hearted theatre and fun! Campers will enhance their performing arts skillset, while experiencing an all-encompassing look at what it takes to be a musical theatre performer. No experience needed!

The camp will culminate with a final showcase debuting the Next Generation of Broadway, which is free to all participant families. All young performers will have an opportunity to audition for solos and select speaking roles in the performance.
