Participating shows includes Aladdin, Beetlejuice, Chicago, Come From Away, Frozen, The Great Society, Mean Girls, Moulin Rouge!, Oklahoma!, The Lightning Thief: The Percy Jackson Musical, The Lion King, The Phantom of the Opera, Tootsie, Waitress and Wicked.
Broadway Bridges was founded in 2017 and is made possible with the support of The Broadway League, New York City Department of Education and the United Federation of Teachers. The program developed by a group of leading commercial and non-profit industry professionals to build on the significant work the Broadway community already does in bringing New York City students to Broadway. Broadway Bridges estimates to bring about 20,000 tenth grade students and chaperones from all five boroughs to a show during the 2019-2020 season.
Charlotte St. Martin, President of the Broadway League stated, “With the support from the Department of Education, the United Federation of Teachers and the New York City Council led by Speaker Corey Johnson, Broadway Bridges is ever closer to bringing all public high school students in the city to a Broadway show before graduation.”
