Thank you for attending our Broadway Stars on Stage program where ECPAA, together with husband & wife team Carolyn Berliner and Jared Trudeau (Woodstock Academy alumnus and New York City-based voice teacher), brought Broadway stars to eastern Connecticut to perform an incredible one-night-only concert in the Cabaret Theatre at Mohegan Sun.
Our first Broadway Stars on Stage event took place Saturday, August 13, 2022 in the Cabaret Theatre and included a concert and a VIP cocktail hour meet & greet.
To work toward the part of our mission to train and support a new generation of artists, we offered a Broadway Honors Ensemble to local students. This was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to sing with and learn from professional singing actors from Broadway and beyond.
