Honestly? Before Hello Broadway, I was so scared of being on stage. But I have been able to open up and now I’m not only confident in my singing, but my acting and dancing as well!

Joseph K.

I was so impressed with the authenticity the coaches brought to this workshop. Being real, being truthful in their teaching was a welcoming experience. It was also The. Best. Booty. Kickin. Day my daughter Jordan received!! Looking forward to the Incubator program and more growth for my daughter.

Tammy, Parent

I think it is amazing that we get feedback from Broadway stars. I feel that I’m improving each month and gaining a wonderful community! I think it is one of the best things I have ever done!

Molly R.

The difference in her confidence was ASTOUNDING. As in, "is that my child up there?" It was worth EVERY. PENNY. Also, Robert is a no BS teacher. He tells it like it is - but with love and the desire to help you find your passion. Even if that means it's not to pursue a Broadway career. It really is worth the time and money if your child dreams of being on Broadway.

Traci, Parent

If your child has dreams of working in Musical Theatre, then this is the place to be! The staff at The Broadway Collective guides them and supports them by opening up opportunities to work with Broadway performers as well as receiving feedback. It’s hard work but SO worth it!

Maria, Parent

The biggest things I've learned in Hello Broadway is trusting myself and talents and opening myself up to others, along with bettering my skills and finding the deeper meaning in storytelling.

Glory P.

That day was so full of hard work and fun, we left feeling a new sense of purpose and drive. There was so much support and wonderful advice from the staff that even though I wasn't as proficient in dance as the others that were there, I still had confidence in myself. I cannot stress enough how important and wonderful the Live Master Class was!

Whitney B.

We were literally blown away not only by the professionalism of the staff, but the incredible heart they bring to what they do. Robert has created a truly one-of-a-kind opportunity that will leave your child inspired to not only be a better performer but a better person.

Sarah, Parent

Letter from Robert

Oh my goodness! Thank you so much for stopping by!

I remember being your age and telling my mom that I wanted to be on Broadway (I was obsessed with musical theater...especially the ​CATS ​soundtrack. I know, no judgments.) The thought of being on Broadway literally sent shivers up my spine. And like me, you’re here because something inside of you craves NYC and the thought of making it on Broadway.

Listen, I can’t put you in a Broadway show, but I can teach you what it takes to get there. Broadway may seem like a distant, faraway, almost impossible dream. But it’s not impossible. It is doable.

I want to make you a better singer, dancer, and actor, of course. But more importantly, I want to make you a better​ worker.​ I want to help you understand the commitment level and work ethic that Broadway actually requires.

You’re probably scared of doing one of the disciplines we are going to cover in the Master Class. That’s okay! I know you don’t know me yet, but my mom says I’m pretty awesome. I will be right there to encourage you, push you, and root for your dreams.

Talk with your parents and get yourself registered today. I promise: your future self will thank you.

Truly,
Robert Hartwell

F A Q

National Tour Vs. Hello Broadway Live

Last year on our National Tour a student who has joined us faithfully each year said “this is my one Broadway day each year”. I was troubled by her statement because I know “one Broadway day a year” isn’t going to get her the results she wants.

When I opened The Broadway Collective I said our mission was to be the new standard of training Broadway’s next generation. That standard requires work, dedication, and frankly more than one day.

Do I love the National Tour? Oh my goodness, absolutely! We wouldn’t be here if we hadn’t done it for the past 4 years. But what I know for sure is that if you are looking to be competitive in this industry at any level (regional theatre, collegiate, or moving to NYC) you are going to have to be readily equipped in your skillset training.

What our team can do with students in 6 hours on the National Tour is out of this world, but what we do in our online training programs is where we see lasting transformation.

Our team wants to work with committed students who are ready to take the wild leap to work on their musical theatre training like a scholar looking to get into an Ivy League, or a young person training for the Olympic trials. Why that student? Because that’s the student that fulfills the mission of why we opened The Broadway Collective.

We have too much to offer to be a one day Broadway feel good event. That’s not how you’re going to fill the gaps in your training. I want wins for our students. I want your investments in your education to glean the results you’re working hard for–and I know our Hello Broadway curriculum is training students in a way that is unprecedented.

So when the choice is feeling good for a day vs. feeling good and having a curriculum based program to move the needle on your skills, my vote as Artistic Director is always going to be move the needle.

Where will Hello Broadway Live be held?

Hello Broadway Live is a one-day event in NYC with a 4-week online learning component before the live event. We will work out of Open Jar Studios–the biggest Broadway rehearsal studios in Manhattan!

Who can register for Hello Broadway Live?

Hello Broadway Live is recommended for students aged 12 and up. Students are split into groups and rotated through breakout Master Classes in Singing, Dancing, Acting, and Audition Techniques.

WHAT IF I CAN’T DANCE / SING / ACT? SHOULD I STILL COME?

We don’t believe in the word “can’t”. We want you to become a more versatile performer.

The most successful Broadway Artists are well-rounded and train at all disciplines. We are here to help you develop a strong work ethic and a hunger to learn. Come with a positive attitude and willingness to embrace all elements of training!

I'm a parent. What do I need to prepare?

Hello Broadway Live is your child’s opportunity to experience the life of a Broadway Artist first-hand. We have created programming and tools to increase your knowledge of and support for the needs of a developing performer.

Parents are welcome to join our welcome seminar and closing sharecase, as well as a parents-only Q&A with Robert Hartwell to address your burning questions about the industry.

How much is it + what is included in the price?

Early Bird Hello Broadway Live registration (before September 29 @ 11:59pm ET) is $495. Final registration (after September 29) is $595. Hello Broadway Live registration includes 4 weeks of online training and personalized weekly feedback, a full-day live Master Class in NYC, an official t-shirt, and our exclusive audition collection – which features an arsenal of 16-bar audition songs and MP3 tracks. Travel and accommodation are not included.
