ProjectFREE RisingSTARZ Theater Group’s mission is to provide opportunities for young adults with Intellectual Disabilities, to participate in community theater experience to the best of their abilities. Working to a high standard, our collaboration with Corinne Broskette, whose team of local theater veterans, production staff + musical director aim to offer stimulating theater that is both challenging and entertaining. Our goal is to identify the impact of community theater experience on communication skills, socialization, self-confidence and self-esteem of our actors. Most of our actors have never experienced live theater or performed on stage.
The RisingSTARZ Theater program is balanced with live music and performing arts training. Each production is an original adaptation of popular Broadway Musicals, created and directed by Corinne Broskette, Executive Creative Director of RisingSTARZ Theater Group. Season starts in January, with 7 months of rehearsals, 2 days a week. The final production is April. Hard to find dry eyes in the audience during the show ~ but many smiles and standing ovations at every performance! The pure joy and pride displayed by our actors are infectious. They truly are “RisingStarz” We are now celebrating our 7th Season, with an exciting production of the musical “Rock of Ages”
