Question: What age is Blue Plate Broadway for?
Answer: BPB is designed for students 5 - 15. We have long days that require focus and attention. Students older than 15 are welcome to apply to be Junior Counselors (applications open on April 1, 2016).
Question: What is the general week like for BPB?
Meet and Greet - Sunday, June 5th, 2016 (3:00pm)
Meet and Greet is never mandatory. But it is a chance for counselors, parents, and students to chat. The counselors always sing a little song and spend some time answering any questions, as well as seeing our students. We have precious little rehearsal time, so this is a nice relaxing moment before we begin.
Camp Days - Monday through Friday June 6th - 10th (12:00pm - 5:00pm)
Performances - Friday June 10th (7:00pm), Saturday June 11th (2:00pm), and Saturday June 11th (7:00pm) - Shows typically run about an hour and forty minutes including intermission.
Question: What are the dates of BPB?
Answer: We typically announce our summer dates in the springtime. As such our 2016 dates have not yet been set. But here is a general timeline.

Question: My student has no prior experience on stage...is this the right camp for him/her?
Answer: Absolutely! Part of what makes BPB so special is that we welcome students of every ability, background, experience. All students are equal from Day 1 of camp through curtain call. Our camp is not only about learning skills that make one a great performer, but learning the skills to do something with a team that you did not know you could do a few days before.
Question: Does BPB offer any discounts?
Answer: We do! We offer Early Bird and Returning Student Discounts, as well as Sibling Bundle packages. To stay up to date on those discount and when enrollment begins, please join our mailing list or follow us on Facebook. More importantly, please note that BPB never turns any student away based on ability to perform or ability to pay. Please contact Executive Director Heather Shields for more information.
