Broadway For All has extended its free summer conservatory application deadline to this coming Monday, June 11, at 6pm ET.

Rising 5th- to 12th-grade students from across the nation are invited to apply to Broadway For All's New York City-based six-week summer conservatory, led entirely by a faculty from the Broadway, TV, and film industries, with divisions in drama, musical theater, and dramatic writing. The summer conservatory is free and takes place in Midtown's Theater District on weekdays from July 12-August 21, 9:30am-4:30pm.

The program is described as follows: "Students will not only get a chance to train rigorously with a full-time faculty of industry professionals and gain tools to hone their craft and audition skills, but they will also perform an original play and musical, and present a staged reading in the Theater District in front of agents and managers. In addition to developing their talent and advancing their professional careers, students leave Broadway For All with a deeper interest in committing their lives to active inclusivity for all people, on the American stage and screen — and beyond — for the rest of their lives."

Prior guest faculty has included Tony Award winner David Henry Hwang (M. Butterfly), Pulitzer Prize winner Martyna Majok (Cost of Living), Adeola Role (Harry Potter and the Cursed Child), Kristolyn Lloyd (Dear Evan Hansen), Voltaire Wade-Greene (Hamilton), and Amir Arison (NBC's The Blacklist), among others.

Broadway For All was born out of a Presidential Public Service Fellowship in 2012 through Harvard University's Office of the President and is now a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization based in New York City. Its mission is to transform the American stage and screen to reflect the diversity of America. Broadway For All trains young artists from all socioeconomic levels and all ethnic backgrounds in a world-class conservatory in order to shape a new generation of artists, leaders, and advocates who are impassioned to create inclusive work for all.
