Broadway Arts Factory is an educational institution devoted to the training of musical theatre students between the ages of 11 and 18. With a triple threat focus, we aim to maximize the potential of every student by finding the most passionate and dedicated, regardless of their monetary background; the sliding scale of program fees is based on the finances of each student's family. The exceptional faculty members are some of the most innovative and creative educators in New York City. They are members of the Broadway community who share a passion for arts education. Our goal is to train and provide mentorship to the next generation of Broadway performers, and our program parallels industry requirements, where versatility is the key to success. We will inspire, inform, challenge, support, and educate each and every student that steps foot in our classroom, helping them to fully realize their dream of one day being on the Broadway stage. Note: We are in the process of applying for 501(c)(3) status. Founder and Artistic Director Ben Hartley, and Executive Director Amanda Edge.
