NBC’s “Smash” star Jeremy Jordan is coming to Council Rock High School South this summer as part of a week-long performing arts camp to be held from July 29 to Aug. 3.
Led by Broadway film and television casting director David Petro, the professional performing arts camp will feature classes on dancing, acting, voice, film-making and more, according to a press release. Participants will also have a chance to take a professional headshot and get resume tips.
Registration is open to ages 8 to 25; all experience levels are welcome
Jordan starred in the film “Joyful Noise” along with Queen Latifah, Keke Palmer and Dolly Parton. He played Jack Kelly in Disney's “Newsies” on Broadway for which he was nominated for a Tony Award for Best Performance.
In June 2012, Jordan was cast as in the lead role of Jimmy in the Steven Spielberg-produced NBC hit series “Smash.” The second season of “Smash” premiered on Feb. 5.
“We are thrilled to offer this amazing educational opportunity to our community,” said Kristina Tuxhorn of BC Discoveries Dance & Theatre Arts. “The elite professional instruction of David Petro, Jeremy Jordan, and the BBT faculty, are extraordinary– this is such a wonderful opportunity for aspiring performers to learn from seasoned professionals and network with people actively involved in the entertainment business.”
Enrollment is $495 a person by May 15 and $595 a person after May 15. The class meets each day from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Council Rock High School South.

“We encourage early registration, as space for this camp is limited and we are almost sold out in all cities,” says Steven Brandt, Broadway Break Thru® (BBT) Workshops Coordinator.
