Joshua Grosso Broadway Star of the Future Award Davie, FL
How did you get into theater?
I had the opportunity to first be introduced to theater at my school, American Heritage in Plantation. I had the blessing of receiving a musical theater scholarship and there is where I performed in my first show, "Willy Wonka Jr."
Who are some of your role models in entertainment?
There are many fine actors and artists that I admire, such as Leonardo di Caprio, Christian Bale, Daniel Day Lewis, etc. As for vocalists, artists such as Josh Groban, Michael Buble, Frank Sinatra, and Sammy Davis Jr., just to name a few.
What challenges have you had to overcome to get here?
Not very many people get to such a privileged position without making sacrifices and I think my colleagues and I have made many of them. From endless hours of rehearsing to giving up some weekends or canceling plans, it’s all part o the deal, but it’s what we love… This experience has helped me mold into a stronger and better person overall.
