Starlight Stars of Tomorrow

Starlight Stars of Tomorrow

The Starlight Stars of Tomorrow program is designed to help middle school students build a foundation of performance skills.

Through training, performance opportunities and master classes, students learn about the art of musical theatre. Selected students:

  • Meet peers who share a passion for performing
  • Learn the theatre process (from auditions to performing)
  • Are eligible to audition for Starlight productions
  • Become part of the Starlight community

The program’s activities take place throughout the summer, with additional fall and winter opportunities. This summer’s sessions will take place in-person, following COVID-19 safety guidelines. Company members receive access to master classes and industry-insider workshops. Scholarship applications available upon request.
