New York Trips

We sponsor three New York City trips for each academic year.


Musical Theatre Trip

This trip departs from campus on the Saturday evening after Fall Commencement and returns to Boone on the following Friday. Students stay at Appalachian State University’s New York Loft, making the trip uniquely affordable for the students. Typical activities include attending Broadway and off-Broadway musical productions, “The Radio City Music Hall Christmas Spectacular,” backstage tours, meet-and-greets with members of Broadway casts, meetings with theatrical union and musical licensing companies and free time to see the beauty of New York City during the holiday season.

Theatre Senior Trip

This trip departs from campus on Monday, the week prior to the start of spring classes, and returns on the Sunday before classes begin. Students stay at Appalachian State University’s New York Loft, making the trip uniquely affordable for the students. Typical activities include attending Broadway and off-Broadway productions, meetings with cast members and ASU alumni working in the field, tours of Lincoln Center, Julliard and Signature Theatre, sessions with commercial and not-for profit producers, and visits to Broadway Cares/Equity Fights Aids. Priority consideration is given to senior theatre majors, then senior theatre minors, and those who have not made previous trips.
