STAR (Summer Theatre Arts Rendezvous) is a theatre arts summer program for youth between 12–18 years old in which students will develop the skill sets that align with their interests. This summer, students can choose from Playwriting, DirectingActing, or Musical Theatre & Production (or all four) and hone their skills with the guidance and mentorship of top teaching artists from across the country.

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 intensive, or may choose to attend all three weeks (and save $100 on registration) and see an original piece through from creation to production. Camp Showcases will be every at the end of every week at 2:00 PM, and are free and open to family, neighbors, and community. 

Ages: 12 and Up
Playwriting, Acting, and Musical Theatre & Production Intensives are $200
Two-Week Directing Intensive is $400
Join us for all three weeks and save $100 on registration!

Playwriting Intensive

July 8th - July 12th, 2024. 

This week-long intensive is geared towards supporting the artistry of young writers, poets, and visionaries. Campers will explore as both 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 pieces, working through a first, second, and final draft. This camp will culminate in a staged-reading showcase for family and friends. (Tuition: $200 / Ages 12+)

Directing Intensive

July 8th - July 19th, 2024

This *two week-long* intensive is geared towards supporting the artistry of young directors, world-builders, and leaders. Campers will explore the craft of directing to build imaginative worlds from the ground up. Campers will collaborate with both playwrights and actors as they explore the role the director plays in the creative process. By stepping into each role, campers will deepen their understanding of directors while better understanding the performer and the playwright. This camp will culminate in a staged-reading showcase for family and friends. (Tuition: $400 / Ages 12+) 

Acting Intensive

July 15th - July 19th, 2024

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.

(Tuition: $200 / Ages 12+) 

Musical Theatre & Production Intensive

July 22nd - July 26th, 2024

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. Production tracks this year includ Stage Management, Scenic Construction, and Production Design.

(Tuition: $200 / Ages 12+)
