Rising Stars 2019

Macomb Arts Center

Proudly presents

Who: Students in grade K – 8 at the end of spring 2019. High school students are invited to apply as volunteer assistants for community service. If interested, please email statement of interest and experience to risingstars@wciarts.org.

What: Rising Stars is a comprehensive three week theatre experience focused on developing all aspects (script, set, costumes, music, etc.) of a creative, original stage production. Everyone is a star at Rising Stars, on stage or off, because each person’s light is needed for our final production to succeed. No experience needed! We welcome kids who like to act, sing, play music, write stories, write songs, build things, draw, paint, create things, or just have fun and help out! We will encourage each participant to find and develop their talents; to discover and honor the unique and wonderful person they are; to be no one but themselves.

When: Monday-Friday, 1:00-5:00pm, Jul 15-Aug 2; performances 7:30pm, Friday, August 2 and 2:00pm, Saturday, August 3. Participation is still possible for those not able to attend all three weeks. Contact risingstars@wciarts.org or call 309-836-2782 for more information
