Summer Theatre Arts Rendezvous (STAR)

Perseverance Theatre is still finalizing the details of the 2019 STAR program (stay tuned for updates!), but here's an overview, to help families plan. Reach out to Julie Coppens with any questions:; 907-796-9031.

This year's theme: Choose Your Adventure! In order to serve more students and offer a wider range of theatre experiences, both on stage and behind the scenes, we're breaking the traditional 5-week STAR program into three a'la-carte modules. Families can choose which week(s) work best for them, as students can elect to participate in one, two, or all three modules. Some programs will be held at community locations other than our theatre in Douglas. Workshops and productions will be led by a professional team of outstanding teaching artists from Juneau, Anchorage, and beyond.
STAR Prologue: June 24-28
We'll warm up with a week of half- and full-day options, for various age groups and interests. Workshops may including stage combat, "PT Peewees" for ages 5-8, Tech Theatre Intensive, and Teen Acting Intensive.
STAR Corps: July 1-21
We'll stage two simultaneous productions, full-out: students ages 9-18 can choose from a Shakespeare/classic piece and a musical TBA. Rehearsals for both will run 9:30 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday-Friday; students must commit to participating all day, every day. Both shows will perform in repertory July 19-21 on PT main stage.
STAR Finale: July 22-26
We'll end with a few more optional add-on programs, including Theatre in the Wild (camping+playmaking) for older students, Podcasting for middles, and "PT Peewees" for younger students.
PLUS: Play in a Day!
A series of drop-in, pop-up theatre experiences for all ages, offered on single days throughout the summer, at various community locations TBD. Come play with us!
