The Rising Stars Music Theater Program draws students from all over the nation. It is a two-week residential program specifically designed for students who have an interest in the arts and want to cultivate their artistic talents. Our acclaimed program provides students with an exciting introduction to musical theater.

Students will explore the foundations of musical theater through acting, singing and dancing under the guidance of our talented, caring and experienced staff. Students will be in rehearsals for the fully staged musical production for most of their day, but will also enjoy classes in dance, acting, and special topics related to music theater.

All students will perform in the fully staged musical at the end of the session. Our Summer 2024 production will be the hit musical SpongeBob SquarePants!
