  • Having the opportunity to create and develop a brand new musical takes time, resources, willing talented people, and most importantly, faith. Bravo Academy gave Steven Gallagher and I all of these things in abundance on our show Drama 101. We are so grateful to have had this opportunity, and are so proud of what the Emerging Artist Ensemble accomplished thanks to the facilitation and support of Bravo.

  • Being part of Bravo Academy's NMTI was an incredible experience. Melissa and her team were so supportive, helpful and encouraging of our creative process. The space is beautiful and the young performers are exceptional.

  • Bravo Academy's New Music Theatre Intensives was instrumental in the development of our musical, Drama 101. From the initial idea leading up to a workshop production, Bravo provided the resources and support to help us realize the potential of our new show. Bravo will offer dramaturgical support, directors, musical directors and wonderful young actors to make sure that your musical gets the first production it deserves. It was an incredible experience that helped us to hone our skills as music theatre writers and I would recommend to anyone interested in developing their new piece.

  • Being a part of both Going Under and Drama 101 in the New Music Theatre Intensive program was a dream come true. This program served as an amazing transition for me from music theatre education to employment. I grew as an artist while also developing connections within the community and gaining firsthand experience working on brand new material.

  • The opportunity to be a part of a new work is not something I thought I would be able to experience so young.To be able to have a personal and special relationship with people who are as creative and caring is something that I will continue to cherish. In such an intense environment your skills are honed to a new edge.
