Uncover the Secrets of Broadway Productions
This experience is a unique opportunity to meet with the Broadway producer Lauren Class Schneider. In any theatrical production, there's just as much action behind the scenes as there is onstage. During this 90-minute discussion, which includes wine and cheese, Broadway producer Lauren Class Schneider takes you behind the curtain with stories from nearly 30 years in the industry. The session takes place early in the evening so that guests have time to make it to a Broadway show afterwards. You will have the opportunity to directly ask Lauren questions about life on Broadway, career paths available in the theatre industry, or how to become involved in a Broadway show. Guests will also enjoy wine and "bar cheese" at a Broadway mainstay, Sardi’s. When you arrive, tell the Maitre'D that you're there to see Lauren Class Schneider. You’ll be directed to the right place. Each admission includes a $100 gift card for Broadway Fantasy Camp, Schneider’s 3-hour to five-day sessions that allow theater enthusiasts to immerse themselves in an authentic Broadway experience, from headshots to performance to meeting Broadway stars.
