Which Broadway Show Do You Want To See? Sign Up Now!

NYC tour participants will have the opportunity to see several cultural events while in The Big Apple. On Sunday, March 1, students will attend one of two Broadway musicals.  We need to know - now - which of the two musicals is your FIRST choice. There is no guarantee that everyone will be able to attend their first choice, but the reason we are asking students to make a decision now is that it gives us the best chance to secure tickets for their first-choice production.

After taking a few moments to familiarize yourself with both shows (see links below), please go to the following online survey and register your first-choice.

Special Notes:
  • The survey will also ask tour participants to express any special dietary needs, or food allergies, so that we may begin planning appropriately to support those needs.
  • Students should complete the survey no later than Friday, August 29. Students who fail to complete the survey by August 29 will be assigned to one of the two shows by our staff.
  • We will do our absolute best to assign students to their 'first-choice' production, but in the event that we run out of allotted tickets for a particular show, we will honor requests beginning with the time-stamp on the survey response.
