As a former teacher with the Peel Board of Education, she has directed many musical theatre productions with students of all ages. Diane created the Kids on Broadway Musical Theatre Program in 2001.

We are conveniently located in the west end of Toronto (Etobicoke) - a five minute walk from the Royal York subway station. Kids on Broadway gives the young performer a chance to experience the world of musical theatre in a professional environment. Students will learn specific techniques to develop their vocal, acting and dance skills.
Success on stage helps performers develop valuable life skills, such as the ability to deliver effective oral presentations, approach social situations with poise and confidence, and meet challenges with self-discipline. Each child's potential is developed while he or she experiences the thrill of accomplishment and the joy of being part of a team.
