Below is the archived schedule from BroadwayCon 2016. Please note that it may not accurately reflect everything that took place, as we made on-the-fly changes due to the blizzard.

For most programming, you do not need to sign up in advance! For the most part, admission is first-come, first-served. Exceptions to this include workshops and autograph/photobooth sessions - more information about these can be found on our website. Adding a panel to your schedule does not guarantee admission to the panel.
