Welcome, STAR Campers!

STAR (Summer Theatre Arts Rendezvous) is a theatre arts summer program for youth between 12–18 years old in which students will develop the skillsets that align with their interests. This summer we will have three, week-long tracks for students to choose from (or choose all three). Students can choose from Playwriting & Directing, Acting, or Musical Theatre & Production (or all three) and hone their skills with the guidance and mentorship of Teaching Artists. 

Each of these tracks is geared towards building the students skills as an artist and community member, so that we may continue to develop our local artists pool, and build a healthy arts ecology for Tlingít Aaní and beyond. 

The program is student-driven, so each camper will be encouraged to honor their inner artist, and to use their own unique skill set to develop a performance piece that speaks from their unique perspective. 

Students will have the opportunity to opt in to any week-long intensive, or may choose to 

attend all three weeks and see an original piece through from creation to performance. 

Choose Your Adventure:

Playwriting and Directing Intensive

July 17th – July 21st, 2023. 

This week-long intensive is geared towards supporting the artistry of young writers, poets, and visionaries. Campers will explore as actor, playwright, and director to build imaginative worlds from the ground up. By stepping into each role, campers will deepen their understanding of the craft as both the performer and the playwright. Over the course of the week, campers will work to write and direct their own 10-minute plays, working through a first, second, and final draft. This camp will culminate in a staged-reading showcase for family and friends. (Ages 12+)

Acting Intensive

July 24th – 28, 2023

This program is meant to bring artists onto the stage and into their bodies. Campers are invited to bring their own monologues (published, or one that was developed during Week One) that will be explored throughout the week. Starting with table work, we will develop our acting, character work, and scene analysis skills. From the table, students will then have the opportunity to get scenes and monologues onto the Mainstage to further develop their characters. This week culminates in a student-devised showcase, in which students will present pieces worked on through the week. (Ages 12+) 

Musical Theatre and Production Intensive

July 31st – August 4th, 2023

Students will have two tracks to choose from for this week – Musical Theatre or Production. Campers that choose the Musical Theatre track will have the chance to work on musical solos, and duos. Students will also practice ensemble building by learning a group number. Campers that choose the Production track will flex their creativity, and will develop their skills in technical work that collaborates with the performance aspects of theatre. (Tuition: $150 / Ages 12+)
