BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — When a talented cast of performers comes to Buffalo for a show at Shea's, they'll leave a lasting impact on Western New York.
Long after the performance is over, some audience members will remember the songs, the dances and the hard work both on stage and behind the scenes. They'll remember because they learned from the very performers they watched on stage.
Every time a show comes through Shea's the staff tries their best to coordinate learning opportunities. Students of all ages can learn to sing, dance, act or work on crucial behind-the-scenes elements from industry experts. Master classes are offered for any age.
Shea's also offers summer camp opportunities for young adults with week-long programs at Shea's and Shea's 710 Theater. Camp Broadway makes theater arts accessible to all, with scholarship programs to help cover the cost. Children will build self-confidence, presentation skills and discover their own unique talents.
New for the summer of 2019 is "The Actor's Edge" summer intensive program. Shea's Performing Arts Center and the Theatre of Youth are collaborating to create an intensive summer program for teens who are serious about the craft of acting. They'll receive college-level instruction by professionals.
