Following a mass 'kick off' and warm-up session the day-long programme will consist of:

Groups perform 10 minutes of a Broadway Junior musical for adjudication by leading theatre professionals. Groups are rated in the areas of music, acting, dance and overall performance. The adjudicators offer constructive criticism to each group to encourage further learning in key areas.

Get a sneak peak at the newest shows soon to be released in the Broadway Junior range. An exclusive Q&A session with specially invited guests gives the opportunity for students to ask questions to musical theatre stars/writers.

West End professionals and master teachers from across the globe offer interactive workshops in all aspects of musical theatre performance. Groups will rotate around THREE separate workshops, each focusing on a specific skill.

During adjudications, 2-4 students from each group will be selected as All-Stars. All-Stars will participate in exclusive workshops and will rehearse and perform a featured number at the Awards Ceremony on the main stage.


To celebrate the accomplishments of the day everyone gathers in the main theatre to watch the All-Stars perform. Outstanding performances are selected from the morning's adjudications and groups perform their numbers on the stage. Awards are given for achievements in dance, music, acting and ensemble as well as outstanding male and female performances.
Special guest stars will perform on the main stage as a special treat to those attending the event.
