African Broadway Inc, is a Non-Profit organization that exists to promote a better appreciation of the various African cultures and share African stories to all African decent in a fun and exciting musical learning environment. The Center focuses on authentic and original African music for its musical theatre performances and Dances of native Africans. We showcase a wide array of indigenous musical instruments, and the colorful traditional outfits necessary for a better understanding and proper appreciation of the African Culture.
At African Broadway, we stage African theater productions to showcase the African culture, as well as share our cultural history, music and heritage with all Africans in the diaspora, and also give African-Americans a sense of pride and cultural belonging. We bring awareness of African’s social and political problem to the fore through our musical theatre productions thereby promoting justice and equality. We believe that telling these stories will help fight racism, and ultimately foster social change.
In 2019, we staged our Debut performance titled "Journey To Africa" which was a 2hrs show that represented the evolution of Nigerian music from the pre-colonial era till date. Through various solo and choral performances of well-known Nigerian songs, we made an effort to educate the audience about the various elements that are present in African Music and how these elements have been influenced by different factors such as culture, colonization, westernization etc.
We are currently looking for Male/ Female dancers and actors to join our upcoming event.
