The Lied Center Triple Threat Broadway Intensive is thrilled to bring back Tony Award winning Broadway Music Director, Jason Michael Webb for a third year.  Mr. Webb will work with each student personally, sharing his expertise of what it takes to have a successful career in the musical theatre industry. 

Tuition for the 5-day intensive is $250 per participant. Need-based Scholarships for the tuition are available!

We will also be offering housing on campus with UNL housing for an additional cost of $200.

HOW THE INTENSIVE WILL BE STRUCTURED

We will cap enrollment at 50 students.  We will be dividing students up into 4 different groups of 13 students max. These groups will be divided based on dance ability and experience.  

Classes will take place from 8:30am-6:00pm daily with plenty of breaks and socially distanced social time built in.

Most of the sessions will be small groups.  Each student in the group will receive primarily one on one instruction with the instructor. 

  • For voice, we are asking that each student come prepared with 2 contrasting musical theatre songs.  Each student will get one on one time in vocal master classes with Jason Michael Webb and vocal instruction with Alicia Olatuja.  
  • For acting, Student will be working with Lelund Durond Thompson with a focus on acting for film! 
  • For dance, we are looking to have each of the 4 groups learn different musical theatre choreography based on dance experience and ability with Katie Pohlman.
