Camp Broadway presents Develop Your Character featuring Host, Elysa Gardner, to offer candid conversations with theater educators, industry experts and insiders and savvy parents, geared towards helping culture-loving kids and aspiring artists become great performers on and off stage, at every stage of their lives. The first episode features Colleen Jennings-Roggensack, an arts leader and visionary who for the past 26 years has been the Executive Director of ASU Gammage and Vice President for Cultural Affairs for Arizona State University. She was previously president of the Association of Performing Arts Presenters, served on the National Council on the Arts at the bequest of President Clinton, and currently chairs The Broadway League’s Diversity & Inclusion Committee.
Colleen discusses her career-long commitment to arts enrichment, highlights the value that engagement in the theatre has on a child’s personal development and describes the vital role that Broadway plays in every community. She also discusses the importance of having a passion for something—in one’s life and career. Her advice to parents and aspiring artists is both profound and inspiring.
