DISCOVER. CREATE. PERFORM.
BRAVO ACADEMY and NEW MUSIC THEATRE INTENSIVES remain committed to our productions, both current and upcoming, during the COVID-19 pandemic. We are working hard to bring you the shows that we were all so excited to see and perform in whatever way we can. We are also opening some of NMTI’s past shows to licensing for virtual and streaming performances, and will continue to expand the list.
New Music Theatre Intensives is committed to developing contemporary Canadian musicals specifically for youth and teen performers. Our productions are accessible and suitable for casts of all sizes, and many are now available for licensing.
New Music Theatre Intensives is also committed to training young and emerging artists in new methods and styles to prepare them for professional opportunities.
Bravo Academy’s New Music Theatre Intensives premiered in 2013. The program was created to provide INNOVATIVE music theatre training, specializing in CONTEMPORARY musicals for our next generation of performers. Giving them the EXPERIENCE and opportunity to be led by a team of respected industry professionals. Since its inaugural performance, the program has produced eight inventive productions including multiple WORLD PREMIERES and a SOLD-OUT, CRITICALLY-ACCLAIMED remount of Drama 101 at the Toronto Fringe Festival in 2019. It has grown from one intensive to five intensives per year. Each one comprised of a small group of talented and skilled performers admitted via audition.
New Music Theatre Intensives provide innovative, modern, advanced and highly specialized music theatre training for both young and emerging artists. Through producing contemporary music theatre, our intensive programs assist and advance artists as they work towards professional careers. We strive to challenge and educate artists to reach their potential. We aim to develop and produce new Canadian musicals and work with leading Canadian professionals and artists.
