Is this right for you?

Hello Broadway Live isn’t for everyone. Is it the right program for you? We’re looking for a particular kind of student.

Let’s see if you meet this criteria:

You’re a musical theatre student, ages 12-25.
You consider yourself to be at the intermediate to advanced level.
You are serious about pursuing a career in the performing arts.
You want to work on Broadway, in Hollywood, or maybe both!
You can envision yourself performing onstage, or maybe writing, directing, and producing too.
You recognize that musical theatre is a highly competitive industry. To “make it,” you will need the best training and serious commitment.
You’re kind to others. You’re not a bully. You will bring positivity and light into this community which is truly a Broadway Family.
Or, maybe you have a different career goal (medicine, engineering, education, etc.) but you LOVE theatre...and you’re looking for a place where you can take classes, learn, grow, perform, and do what you love.

Broadway Performers Teaching You...


Don’t be fooled into thinking that singers get “mover combinations” on Broadway. Absolutely not. You will learn Broadway choreography that will push you into being the diverse dancer Broadway requires.


If you’re a fantastic dancer, chances are you will make it through the dance cut, but the most important factor in booking the job is nailing your 16-bar vocal audition. Learn how to warm up your voice and how to select a great audition song.


Anyone can sing a high note. Anyone can get their leg up. The secret sauce is doing it while telling a story. Through monologue, scene study, and audition sides coaching, we bring your artistry to the next level.


If you can’t walk into an audition room with confidence, then this will be a very difficult business for you to navigate. From initial cattle call to final callbacks, learn to fuel your fear into fire in your belly.

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

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 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

I gained a new dedication and passion to musical theatre. The accomplished teachers and mentors brought out a performer in me that I had never seen before, and I had never felt this connected to my work. From the interactions I had with mentors, teachers, and fellow students, I realized that this community is where I belong, and that these people create the space for me to be the best version of my truthful self.

Ava, student

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

I was amazed by the success of the online program. She was energized even though she was in front of a screen all day! Having access to people in smaller groups was an amazing benefit of being online. She would definitely not hesitate to do the program again online, and I wouldn't hesitate to support that decision.

Michelle, parent

You not only train from the top Broadway professionals in the industry, you make so many connections with students that you could potentially work with (or for!) one day. It was the most eye-opening and life changing experience I’ve ever had.

Tomi, student

I not only learned more in a week than I ever have, but made real connections and friendships. To anyone who doesn't believe it would work online, allow yourself to be surprised and your expectations to be exceeded.

Ellie, student

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. That’s okay! My team and 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.

Hello Broadway Live is 30 days / 4 weeks of musical theatre training that happens online. No travel needed. This is for serious, committed young artists. Students get dance, voice, acting, and audition prep training from Broadway artists. Get personalized feedback and mentorship, make new friends, and get coached on life skills like goal setting, time management, and creating a winning mindset. This is an experience that shapes you into a stronger artist and a more focused, committed student and human being.

Hello Broadway Live is recommended for students aged 12 and up.

Students are split into groups and rotated through master classes, ensuring that every student gets individualized attention.

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 well-trained in 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!

Hello Broadway Live is your child’s opportunity to experience the life of a Broadway artist first-hand. Parents are welcome to join our welcome seminar and closing Sharecase performance, as well as a Parents-Only Q&A to address your burning questions about the industry.

Hello Broadway Live is a one-time payment of $495.

Registration includes 30 days of online training and personalized feedback, live master classes, an official t-shirt, a student (and parent!) workbook, and our exclusive audition collection—which features an arsenal of 16-bar audition songs and MP3 tracks. 

Again, we don’t believe in the word “can’t.” 

Our founder Robert Hartwell came from a single-parent household where money was very tight. At a young age, he figured out how to raise the money he needed to invest in his arts education. You can do this, too.

Check out Robert’s e-book 10 Ways to Carve Out Time and Money for Your Dream. 

Read that book. It’s free. Inside, you’ll find tons of ideas on how to earn (or raise) the money you need! You’re creative and resourceful. We know you can do this.

There are no refunds or cancellations. See our Terms + Conditions.

Even though you’re training with us online, that doesn’t mean it’s time to slack off, scroll on your phone, or smack your gum! We expect you to show up with fierce commitment and treat each training session seriously. 

We have a dress code of black dance clothes and your official Hello Broadway Live t-shirt, which will be mailed to you after you register. For dance classes, please wear jazz shoes. 

Bring a headshot and resume to the first day of class which is January 4, 2021. 

After you register, we’ll email you instructions on what to put into your resume and explain everything you need to know!

It’s a 30 day / 4 week program. We start on January 4, 2021. We wrap up on January 31, 2021. There’s a small amount of prep-work to complete prior to day one.

We recommended setting aside 3 to 5 hours per week. You get out what you put in.

Each week’s coursework will unlock at 10am EST on Mondays, and the corresponding homework assignment is due that Sunday by 5pm EST. Feedback from your Broadway coach is delivered by the following Friday.
