TexARTS Broadway Company

Broadway Company & Broadway Company II
The TexARTS Broadway Company (TBC) is a pre-professional musical theatre program made up of dedicated students who are considering studying the arts at the collegiate level or pursuing a professional career. Classes, led by professional artists, include ballet, tap, jazz/musical theatre, voice and acting technique, song interpretation, monologues, and audition prep. In addition to the technique classes, TBC members are required to attend two hours of rehearsal on Thursdays (TBC I: 7:00 - 9:00 p.m.; TBC II: 5:00 - 7:00 p.m.). The TexARTS Broadway Company members serve as ambassadors for the organization and represent TexARTS at public performances throughout the Lake Travis community. TBC members also perform in "Holiday Extravaganza", the TexARTS annual production where company members integrate all aspects of this program. Company members are expected to uphold the core values of TBC through Teamwork, Dedication, Commitment and Humility.
