Broadway Speakers Bureau

The Broadway Speakers Bureau offers interactive seminars to share information about nonperformance careers in the arts (producing, general management, marketing, etc.) with schools around the country. Speakers include award-winning professionals associated with many of the top Broadway shows such as WICKED, RENT and more. Panelists conduct discussions from a New York City studio via distance learning video conferencing. These seminars are live, and students are encouraged to ask questions. The Broadway Speakers Bureau discussions are produced in partnership with The Broadway League. We are happy to arrange individual distance learning opportunities on a variety of requested topics for participating NHSTA schools upon request. For more information or to schedule a seminar, please email
