Rising Stars Camp
Now in its eighth season, our signature program, Rising Stars Camp, is a one-week musical theater program for children ages 10-18. Students work daily with our professional staff as they learn to sing, act, and dance their way through an exciting variety of Broadway numbers, all while having a blast! The camp culminates in a public performance complete with costumes and professional sound equipment.
What Makes Our Program Different?
Musical Revue Format
Rather than producing a single show, our summer programs follow the musical revue tradition. Choosing a variety of numbers from different shows allows us to feature more students as soloists, and custom-tailor each camp to the talents of our students.
Emphasis on Skill-Building
Our goal is that each camper will finish our program a stronger singer, actor, or dancer than they were before. Whether your child came to us with lots of experience or none at all, our goal is that they leave with some new skills to take on to their next theater adventure.
Positive Social Dynamic
Just as team sports help to build camaraderie, self-esteem, and teamwork skills, the performing arts similarly foster collaboration, inclusivity, and social awareness. We foster an environment where students support and encourage one another, and share leadership responsibility. As a result, we routinely see our students form strong and lasting friendships as they work toward a common goal.
We keep our camp sizes small so that we can be attentive to the needs of each student. Campers work with our staff in small groups – and sometimes even one-on-one – to receive the coaching they need to give a stellar, confident performance. In a Rising Stars program, you are not just a number in a huge cast – you are a key player, no matter what!
We take education very seriously, and hire only the most dedicated arts educators to teach in our programs. All of our instructors are conservatory-trained professionals with years of teaching and performing experience in their respective fields. We seek to train the whole child and give each one the skills and confidence necessary for a dynamic performance.
Unique, Thorough Audition Process
Our non-competitive auditions are one-on-one appointments. We want to get to know you! We take the time to learn about your background and unique talents, because we want our program to be a great fit for YOU!
