Broadway Utica is proud to announce that the Bernadette Eichler Youth Ambassador Program is entering into its 9th year in the 2020-2021 season. This one of a kind program is sponsored in part by Bank of Utica. Our program represents over forty schools in central New York. Broadway Utica’s goal is to invest in 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 in this program.
