The Broadway League's Broadway Bridges program, which connects New York City public high school students from across the five boroughs with Broadway, has launched its new season.
Produced in partnership with the public school system and the United Federation of Teachers, with support from the New York City Council, the fall 2023 Broadway Bridges cycle will include 20 participating shows, including & Juliet, A Beautiful Noise The Neil Diamond Musical, Aladdin, Back to the Future: The Musical, Chicago, Hadestown, Harmony, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, Here Lies Love, How to Dance in Ohio, Kimberly Akimbo, Merrily We Roll Along, MJ The Musical, Moulin Rouge! The Musical, Shucked, SIX, Some Like It Hot, Spamalot, The Lion King, and Wicked.
Broadway Bridges offers $10 Broadway show tickets to 10th grade students across the New York City metro area. The program is the largest theatre education partnership in the history of New York City, with 422 New York City public high schools being served by the program, with representation from each of the 51 city council districts. To date, more than 2,000 teachers have registered for Broadway Bridges.
“Broadway is among the top destinations while visiting New York, and it is significant to be able to welcome local high school students from across all five boroughs to experience this beloved art form. Each ticket provided through Broadway Bridges has the potential to open a world of possibilities where students leave each show feeling further inspired and drawn to the arts,” said Charlotte St. Martin, president of The Broadway League. “We are thankful to partner once again with NYC Public Schools, the United Federation of Teachers, and the New York City Council to present another season of Broadway Bridges where we strive to bridge the gap between arts education, live entertainment, and careers on Broadway.”
