Over the past 12 years, Music Theatre International has been thrilled with the success and positive response to the MTI Broadway Junior Collection.  Since 1998 there have been more than 16,000 licensed MTI Broadway Junior Collection productions in elementary and middle schools throughout the United States and Canada.

The success of the MTI Broadway Junior Collection led MTI to partner with the New York City Department of Education and The Shubert Foundation to bring musical theater into public middle schools and create an environment for the arts in these under-served areas.

To celebrate the program, the Department of Education sponsors a morning of performances featuring students from the 18 public schools in the program.  This year's Shubert Foundation/MTI Broadway Junior "Student Share" event takes place on the morning of May 17 at The Majestic Theater, and it's just been announced that Disney's High School Musical star, Corbin Bleu will serve as the event's Master of Ceremonies.

Our friends at recently published a story about the "Student Share" event, highlighting the program and some of its remarkable participants.  You can check out the article here.
