Student Interest Form

Are you interested in participating in a TBTS event?

We are excited to open up our free Teens Behind the Scenes (TBTS) events for high school students in the Washington D.C. metro area. Please review the Participation Requirements below and fill out the Student Interest Form to be added to the waitlist. If you have any questions about completing the form or about the TBTS program, please reach out to

Submissions for MJ: The Musical are now closed. Check out Broadway at The National’s season lineup and be on the lookout for your opportunity to see on the fall shows!

  • You must be a high school student in the Washington D.C. metro area. If you are selected to receive tickets, a valid student ID may be required to claim them. Your tickets will be transferred to you via Ticketmaster.
  • Students who are selected for the event will receive two free tickets, which includes the post-performance talkback with our dramaturg and (when available) a special guest.
  • Please note that submitting the Student Interest Form does not guarantee you tickets to the event. Five names will be randomly selected for each event. The selection will take place approximately one month prior to the performance.
  • We will contact you via email to confirm that you were selected. If you do not confirm your availability to attend the event within 72 hours your two tickets will be reassigned.
  • If you do not respond to our email or attend the event after confirming your two tickets, your name will be removed from the drawing for the next event.
  • If selected to attend the event, you will be responsible for your own transportation to and from the theatre for the performance.
