  1. Rated 5 out of 5

    BBT at CCPA helped my daughter make some very important life decisions. Because of your connection to CCPA she got a real feel for her #1 dream school and teachers, discovered she could handle the work schedule, and enjoyed living in the dorm with roommates. As a parent I truly enjoyed watching and sharing the daily video and photo updates. I also enjoyed the parent class and cannot wait for the DVD. The final presentation was everything I hoped for and MORE! Because of you and your camp my daughter is going to follow her dream! She looks forward to participating again next year and as a new CCPA student!

    Every since I first met and talked with David and Broadway Break Thru, I knew it was a win-win situation. David and his company have created the perfect environment for a pre-college performing arts summer intensive. His staff is very knowledgeable about creating an exciting week for the students. Their contacts int he theatre community, both locally and nationally, make it a HUGE draw to both parents and High School students. This was our first year collaborating and we have seen success in recruiting potential students to our program and look forward to what the next few years bring both us and BBT in Chicago. They get a chance to showcase downtown Chicago and the thriving theatre community and we get an opportunity to welcome prospective students to the heart of the city and our campus. Again…it’s a win-win.
