About Us

Welcome to BTW!

Broadway Theater Workshops is a year-round theatrical performance training company headquartered in Ridgewood, NJ - only 14 miles west of the George Washington Bridge - and our summer camps are in residence at The Inserra Theatre in Montvale, NJ on the campus of St. Joseph Regional High School. Our expanding programs are offered throughout Northern New Jersey and are easily accessible to students in Rockland, Orange and Westchester Counties in New York. BTW has been the premier musical performance day camp in the Tri-state area for over twenty years.

Our History

Broadway Theater Workshops was founded in 2002 by musical theater composer Neil Berg and acclaimed theater educator John Asselta upon seeing a need for ongoing training for the talented students involved in Bergen County NJ and Rockland County NY’s highly competitive local high school musical programs.

Initially conceived as a one week camp, the company expanded greatly over the years to include a Junior Theater Camp for younger performers (Grades 3 to 5); Senior Theater Camp (Grades 5 -12) with workshops conducted in acting, dancing, speech and diction, improvisation, auditioning, stage combat and more; Performance Camp where campers put up a full show in a two week period of time, and the Advanced Theater Group, a subset of Senior Theater Camp for those seeking a more intensive training experience which requires auditions to be selected for advanced study in small sessions with industry professionals.

The company also offers Private Lessons with Broadway Instructors, in voice study as well as acting and dance classes. In addition, both Master Classes and other special workshops are frequently offered on auditioning, dancing for the non-dancer and composer studies. The company also produces a Fall Grammar School Musical for students in grades 3-8. BTW productions have garnered many awards: Best High School Musical (Metro), Educational Impact (Paper Mill), and Best Overall High School Comedy/Drama (Montclair University). We are so proud of the many BTW students who have left our program to perform on Broadway and other professional stages across the nation. And even those who don't head onto a stage have carried the lessons learned through our best theater programs -- communication, articulation, self-expression, teamwork and more -- to all aspects of their lives. After all, theater skills are skills for life!

Our Benefits

Our goal is to see your children grow. We want them to become confident in their musical and acting skills and passionate about living out their dreams. We know how hard it can be to get started when you're young and anxious with underdeveloped confidence and skills. When Broadway Theater Workshops was founded 20 years ago, we set out to do something about that. When kids join our premiere theatre programs, they will:
  • Build Confidence
  • Overcome Stage Fright
  • Develop Friendships
  • Form Peer Groups with Common Interests
  • Gain Access to Professional Mentors
If you'd like to hear more about our offerings and get your kids connected to a staff and community that will help them become the strongest they've ever been, don't hesitate to reach out to us today.
