Send Joe to NYC for Open Jar!

Joseph Cavazos has always loved to perform. Even at one year, he was entertaining those around him with impressions and just being silly. As Joe grew, he was able to start performing in Community Theater and start competing at conferences. This year Joe was one of a select group asked to attend the Open Jar Institute.

New York City's most Broadway-integrated actor training program, The Open Jar Institute provides select students intensive one-on-one training with some of Broadway's biggest stars, performers, directors, choreographers, agents and casting directors.

Under direction of Tony-winning Board of Directors including Joanna Gleason (Into The Woods), Susan Stroman (The Producers), Lynn Ahrens/Stephen Flaherty (Ragtime), and Artistic Director, Jeff Whiting. A select group of students are chosen each year to spend ONE WEEK in New York City working in intensive master classes, workshops and classes with Broadway's best professionals. Plus...see the hottest new Broadway shows each night, take backstage tours and meet the cast of Broadway shows, all in preparation for your own journey to Broadway.

We were able to offset the total cost with a scholarship Joe received from Open Jar, but he needs a bit more (to cover the rest of tuition and flight) to get him to this amazing, one in a life time opportunity.

Anything will help, we really appreciate the support everyone has given Joe over the, let's get this boy one step closer to Broadway!
