The Midwest’s Premier Musical Theatre Training Intensive
Baker University is excited to collaborate with Music Theatre Kansas City, the area’s top professional preparatory training program, for the 25th summer of Broadway at Baker.
Together, we offer a unique musical theatre intensive where 55 campers will be cast in, rehearse, and perform a full-scale Broadway musical in just seven days. All campers will arrive on Sunday afternoon, where they will meet their roommates, get settled in their rooms, and start the audition process. Auditions, callbacks, and casting all take place on Sunday.
Rehearsal begins Monday and continues daily with vocal, dance, and blocking rehearsal and review from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Nightly activities follow rehearsal every day. Any student serious about a career in musical theatre will thrive in this challenging, educational, and rewarding environment.
Broadway at Baker is open to students 13 to 18 years old. Each camp is limited to 55 students.
State Fair | July 9-16
Set against the colorful backdrop of an American heartland tradition, State Fair travels with the Frake family as they leave behind the routine of the farm for three days of adventure at the annual Iowa State Fair. Mom and Pop have their hearts set on blue ribbons, while their daughter and son find romance and heartbreak on the midway. Set to the magical strains of an Academy Award–winning score and augmented by other titles from the Rodgers and Hammerstein songbook, State Fair is the kind of warm-hearted family entertainment only Rodgers and Hammerstein could deliver!
All Shook Up | July 23-30 CAMP IS FULL
You may register to be put on a mailing list. No deposit is required at this time.
All Shook Up is inspired by and features the songs of Elvis Presley. It’s 1955, and into a square little town in a square little state rides a guitar-playing roustabout who changes everything and everyone he meets in this hip-swiveling, lip-curling musical fantasy that’ll have you jumpin’ out of your blue suede shoes with such classics as “Heartbreak Hotel,” “Jailhouse Rock,” and “Don’t Be Cruel.”
