STAR Program

STAR, Summer Theatre at theREP, is a four week summer theatre program that allows up to 25 students, ages 10-13, to explore the world of theatre in an original and exciting way!


Idolize Percy Jackson? Want to fight like Athena? Believe in magic, mystery and mayhem? STAR 2014 gives you your chance. Students work side by side with professional artists to create a theatre company that works together around the theme “Greek Mythology” to create an original 45-minute performance about the gods and goddesses, and all the mischief they can cause.

During their time with STAR, students will gain skills in writing, costume design, dancing, acting and singing. In a real-world, professional theatre environment, these young producers, performers and writers will learn to work cooperatively with one another thanks to guidance from our professional staff.

Our students are given the freedom to let loose their creative energies and work together to build a show of mythological proportions!

Deadline to enroll is July 2nd.
