What is a workcase
A Workcase is our take on a “Showcase”. It is the culmination of the work we have done together for friends and family in the spirit of “practice makes progress.” It consists of staged ensemble numbers and work from the master classes staged by our Broadway Faculty. And each Roots artist will perform either a 32 bar cut of a song or a monologue.
“BAC’s Summer Roots Experience leaves you feeling rooted for and uplifted by the community we create together!”
