Tour Highlights

Broadway Workshop

Take Part in a Broadway Workshop

Choose from a selection of Broadway-related workshops focusing on the audition process, singing, choreography and stage combat, and backstage processes including make-up and costume design.

With 41 professional theatres, Broadway is the centre of New York City’s theatre district and the best place in the country to see the latest and most iconic shows.

Together with London’s West End, Broadway is seen to represent the highest level of theatre in the English-speaking world, which is why a workshop run by Broadway professionals is a must-do on a performing arts school trip to New York.

Did you know?

There’s no row ‘I’ in Broadway theatres because of the disappointment audiences experienced when realising they weren’t actually in the first row, but the 9th row.

New York TV and Movie Sites Tour

Take a Tour of New York's TV and Movie Sites

See more than 60 locations around New York familiar to you from both the big and small screen!

New York is said to be the most filmed city in the world and many of its landmarks will be familiar to your students, making this a really exciting inclusion in your school trip to New York.

Some of the highlights on the tour include Friends locations, the Ghostbusters firehouse and McGee’s pub, which was the inspiration for MacLaren’s in How I Met Your Mother.
