Broadway Utica is proud to announce that the Bernadette Eichler Youth Ambassador Program is entering into its 11th year in the 2022-2023 season. This one of a kind program is sponsored in part by Bank of Utica. Our program represents over a dozen schools in central New York. Broadway Utica’s goal is to invest in the young people and to inspire them to thrive in the world of theatre, the arts, the community and in life.  Students accepted into this program will be given a season subscription to Broadway Utica, attend pre-talks prior to all the performances, develop relationships with others and be more prepared to act as contributing citizens.  In exchange, the student is required to complete a pre-show synopsis and a post-show review for each performance, community service and making the commitment to be an active participant of this program.

Eligibility Requirements

  • Applicants must be enrolled in a local high school and entering junior or senior year in 2022-2023.
  • Student must be available to attend each opening show night.
  • Student must commit to be an active participant in the program.
  • Student is required to perform 10 hours of community service throughout the season at a Broadway Utica sponsored, supported and/or recommended event.
