Rising Stars Summer Camp – Recap

Thank you to all the campers who participated in this year’s Rising Stars Summer Theatre Camp with the Sterling Playmakers. We had a great two weeks learning how to put together a show. We had music, dance, drama, sound, lights, set, costumes, props and makeup classes. In the afternoon, campers chose their classes and loved stage combat, audition boot camp, acting the song, directing and tap. We put together a fabulous showcase for the last day of camp where the campers performed numbers and scenes from Shrek, Sound of Music, Matilda, Bye Bye Birdie, Aladdin and more. More pictures and video can be found on our Facebook page
